Lets me also point out that whatever you choose, dont *ever* use  
Notepad is the most useless piece of software that ships with windows.

I use Textmate and aquamacs (both on mac of course) and vim  

For a windows new user, I recomment SciTE (which is also available  
via pywin IDE).
  I recommend it to every new student of mine and so far, I've heard  
no complaints. Some of them have switched to vim/emacs etc.,. But to  
start with SciTe is the easiest.
Its super-light weight, supports lots of languages, is cross platform.
An editor like SciTE which "understands" python, makes the "space is  
signiicant" mental block a little easy for the newbie.
Also, SciTE has an easy shortcut "F5" to execute code, the result of  
which can be seen in split window. This also makes it attractive for  
"write-test" interactive mode.

On the side notes: I wrote an app using Google AppEngine and Python :
