I do a lot of GUI programming with wxPython.

I find that switching from desktop 1 (Eclipse/PyDev) to desktop 2
(wxDesigner) becomes a reflex quite quickly ... even under Windows
thanks to virtuawin ( - both packages
also are smart enough to notice when an open file has been modified

I also program in Visual-Studio and overall do not find the RAD/IDE
integration that much more convenient.

Also, I generally get the job done in wxDesigner at the beginning of the
project, and seldom have to get back into it to twick the interface.
