Well, for me, there aren't any strong negative reasons really. I just felt that 
the interface was a bit 'clunky' (the extraneous use of spaces and newlines 
makes me nervous), the commands/shortcuts were non-intuitive to me and I just 
don't like reading docs before trying out something -- which I think is required 
for using ipython.

However, i still do recommend it to people who want colors, completion and all 
sorts of customization abilities from their prompt.
