    "...Many people coming to Python can't believe no one uses IDEs. The
    automatic assumption is that Python is for old grey beards who are
    comfortable with vi and Emacs and refuse to accept breakthroughs in
    programming productivity like IDEs. Then they write a little Python code
    and realize that an IDE would just get in their way."

    It's also not true. Lots of people use IDEs - look at the
    number of Python IDEs out there, and the number of
    attempts (some of them reasonable) to add Python
    support to Eclipse.

    The thing is, there are relatively fewer programming
    tools needed to work with Python than there are
    for Java, for example, so the available IDEs are much
    simpler.

    Line oriented editors are an acquired taste, and they
    are one I've never acquired regardless of the environment.
    I've used both edit under TSO and vi on a timesharing
    arrangement with an AIX system, and both of them suck
    compared to the screen editors available.
