Why pollute your post with stupid flame bait? In many respects, IDLE's
Shell is unequivocally better than interactive python in a line-oriented
shell like Command Prompt. Ironically, given your comment above, one of
its improvements is keeping a history of *statements* rather than a
history of lines. This makes it possible to retrieve and edit a whole
command (statement) at once, rather than in pieces (lines).
