Hi, I have looked at C before just a bit, maybe I'll re-visit it.

About the bash thing, I should clarify bash scripts are great, but I find it hard to write really complex bash scripts, so in that case I prefer to use something like python instead.

Fair enough! They can be very complicated and Python is an excellent alternative. The cross platform capabilities are much greater with Python as well.

Yea, I would bash for simple stuff like an install script, or just for a list of commands I would like to execute without typing them out one at a time. But python is much more consistent, because you know exactly how it will execute, even in weird environments (where some bash commands different/ aren't there)
