That it costs anything is a common misconception:
The Microsoft C# compiler comes for free with Windows.
You can download the Visual Studio 2005 Express Editions for free for a year.
You can download other integrated development enviroments for free (such as SharpDevelop)
You can build C# in Mono for free, which also runs on Linux which is a free OS.
All the MSDN documentation is available for free online.
So altogether, it is highly possible to spend no money and build C# apps.

The problem is that as far as I know, C# isn't anywhere near as portable as python, nor is it anywhere near as open. There are many free python development applications, whereas to write C# requires £300 worth of software.

My vote's cast for python.

After playing around a little with C#, I have to agree with Neil: C# rocks.
Just to throw some salt in the wounds of the Python discussions, I cant help thinking that C# has all the advantages of both Python (run from source, easy to read) and C++ (strong typing, runs quickly).
Btw, OSMP is now available in a C# version ;-)

Yep, not had much practise with managed C++ as I'm lazy and C# is so much easier (!), but I guess managed C++ could be the way to go for integrating with VOS as it can fully utilise the C++ classes.
Still there'd be work required to make the API more ".net like"
