Is Python the equivalent of Basic?

I am about to inherit a Plone based web site at my day job. So I’m reading through the docs at the Plone web site, and they say that I should learn Python. I am shortly at How to Think Like a Computer Scientist and am running my first Hello world program (command) in Python on my Mac. It sure looks like BASIC.

print "Hello, World!"

is the same in BASIC and Python. Cool. Let’s see what happens.
