It's not that hard, it may have some quirks but all languages do, though Python is a little bit easier to learn as a first language so people usually start with it. The main difference is the reach of each language, Python has a huge community that is pushing it forward and has many resources and libraries making it very good for FOSS projects. Also developers that know one of Python/PHP/Ruby/Perl usually wont learn any of the other if they have the choice as these pretty much are the same in regards to programming paradigms and use cases.
