Sad news (for me, at least), in the upcoming version 7.0 of NetBeans
there will be no Python plugin anymore.
I have been using NetBeans for Python development for a while now
and I was very happy with it.
Perhaps I have another look for working with Aptana + PyDev for my web
development stuff, but I am afraid this enviroment (and the base,
Eclipse as it's main reason) is as user unfriendly as it always was.
But long years there was no other choice than Eclipse - Netbeans wasnt
the IDE it is now - and so the people started to build plugins for
Eclipse even being aware of its shortcomings.
I think I check out Activestates Komodo IDE.
I recognized that I use their free Komodo Edit more often lately and
liked the Editor already, perhaps the IDE will be a good choice.
I've seen right now, they put on the topic:
Infoworld awarded it as best Python IDE, testing: Boa Constructor,
Eric, ActiveState's Komodo, Oracle's NetBeans, Aptana's Pydev,
PyScripter, SPE, Spyder, and WingWare's Wing IDE.
And if all fails, remember, there is always vim to fallback :)

I saw somebody using Geany recently and it looked pretty impressive.
For Python gui debuggers, winpdb.org is great.
I use Geany all the time & it is a good little editor.
nice & lightweight for my linux netbook, but still with the features i
need. I am sure a full IDE offers more but i never did get around to
finding out what.
You fill a much-needed gap.
