Heard good things about WIngIDE, the other almost free IDE

Hi there,

You could use the IDLE that is bundled along with the Python
installation.

If you don't like that, you could use any of the following editors:
EditPlus, TextPad, UltraEdit, WingIDE, Komodo (from ActiveState) or
jEdit. All these are Windows based.

Cheers!

I am currently using synEdit.

That is because it is a free, small, and very customizable and
highlites pythn keywords.(and was on the system at work)
Where as at home I use Emacs, or GNUEmacs (depends on which boot up I
chose at the time).

Use something simple. Start with Idle (it comes with Python, and has all
the basic features you may need to learn Python). When you'll have learn
the bases, it will be time to move to something else.

I encourage NOPs (non-original posters) to paste their thoughts into
the wiki for posterity/FAQing, e.g. currently no info on synEdit:

Komodo is available for Linux and Windows, and ActiveState will be
releasing a version for OS X later this year.

jEdit claims to run on many platforms since it's written in Java.

WingIDE has downloads for Linux, OS X, and Windows.

Personally, I favor (X)Emacs and zsh for my DE, but I'm one of those
people who prefer a looser coupling between tools than you typically
get with a monolithic IDE.
