In addition to the well-known Linux, check out http://www.OpenBSD.org, OpenBSD is a leading freeware operating system. Arguably more secure than Linux, runs on more platforms than FreeBSD. Good for secure firewalls and servers. Python and many of its add-on frameworks are available ready-to-install via the OpenBSD Ports mechanism.
