I like the JEdit editor, which is free and cross-platform ( 
http://www.jedit.org/ ), and for the interpreter if you ever use that, 
there is the normal console (cmd.exe in windows) or see also IPython. 
There is also a console plugin for JEdit.

But if you want a more full-featured IDE with project management, etc., 
there is a Python addin for the Eclipse IDE called pydev I believe.  I 
haven't tried it myself though.
