To be clear: ActivePython (ActiveState's distro of Python) includes the
PyWin32 extensions by default on Windows. PyWin32 is an open source set
of extensions for Python on Windows. The PyWin32 extensions include a
Python editor called Pythonwin.

ActiveState also has a product called Komodo that is an IDE for a number
of dynamic languages: Python, Perl, PHP, Tcl, etc.

For Visual Studio users, ActiveState also has a VS.NET plugin for Python
(Visual Python), and plugins for Perl and XSLT as well.
