still in love with IntelliJ

I used their Easter-Sales offer (40% off regular prices) to upgrade my 9.03 Ultimate license
to the current 10.0x version, plus I took some time to play around with the updated

Usually I used plain-IDLE to experiment with simple Python scripts and classes - but
IntelliJ really makes a difference. For example, you can configure a missing docstring
to issue a warning (or hint, if you don't want to be offended...)

The editor feels just right and project support greatly benefits from its established

Having one single IDE for both Java (ok, and Grails, Groovy and Griffon) and Python is worth the few bucks you need to invest in the Ultimate license...
