> So what is HOM ...I'm a little unclear.... 

In a nutshell, HOM (Houdini Object Model) allows you to use python 
anywhere that you normally use expressions or hscript. It also adds 
Houdini specific classes & methods, which more or less replace Hscript & 
the expression language.

Python is a lot more friendly than both the C-expression-like nature of 
the expression language, and the C-shell-like nature of Hscript. You'll 
still be able to use old scripts & such; HOM works alongside it, so you 
have some time to learn it & migrate (which we think most people will 
after a bit of exposure to HOM).
