Well, let me add my choice of environment, too:

I'm using emacs and bash.  I prefer emacs, because the provided Python
mode is very elegent and makes coding much easier and faster.  As I don't
like xemacs, I always run emacs -nw.  Using a shell as bash seems to me
more flexible than some menu item "Run" in a graphical IDE.
