[Baypiggies] Wing IDE's License

Zealotry aside - I'd check out Eclipse (w/pydev), and a couple of the
OSS offerings before shelling out $200....  For instance, wing reminds
me a lot of SPE - http://stani.be/python/spe/screenshots.

I'm NOT a big java fan - but Eclipse has good support for a wide
variety of languages, meaning I can learn just one toolset.  So thats
become my choice for 'production' use.

SPE has really nice 'interactive' features(pycrust shell, debugger,
etc.) that make it great for begginners, but it lacks 'project
management' features.

Anyway - I'd definitely recommend look at these before spending hard
currency :-)
