I love Delphi, 5 days a week, 9:00-17:30, but I don't want Python to be
bound to one platform, as Delphi is (no, Kylix is not an answer, it's a
disaster). I'm really happy (and productive) using wx on Windows and
PyQt on linux, with wxGlade and Qt Designer as GUI designers. There's
only one thing from Delphi I'd like to see in other IDE's -- its
integrated debugging is great. Eclipse (w. Java) has very similar model
of debugger integration.

Go, try Delphi 8.
