Since nobody else mentioned it:
I use Eclipse/Aptana with PyDev, because I mostly deal with web
But Eclipse isn't really a typical Mac app, even if the feeling gets
On my old G4/400 it was unusable slow (like every Java app), on a G5
or a newer Mac mini it runs well.
Otherwise I would have stayed with SPE (FYI: it includes the debugger
Winpdb and the GUI builder wxGlade; I never used them).
Additionally I like TextWrangler for the lighter editing tasks, esp.
because it starts really fast.
The easy way of switching encodings is just great! (Most editors can't
do that at all, don't understand why.)
But it has some nasty mis-features (modal search dialog, Cmd-Shift-S
is *not* "save as"...)
jEdit is Java-ugly; a lot of plugins don't work well on a Mac...
SciTE is X11 only.
Tried Komodo once but didn't like it.
I don't run EmacsOS (I don't need another operating system).
vi is good for remote jobs.
