I've been using Wing IDE Pro for about a month or two and I'm very 
satisfied with it.

Is it "perfect"?  No.  However, I've been communicating the developers 
on some of the minor shortcomings of Wing and they've been extremely 
responsive.  I usually get a return email within a few hours sometimes 

The nice thing is that you can download and try a completely 
non-crippled version for 30 days (10 days at a time).

What I particularly like about it is that it's for Python only.  I find 
Wing much easier to use than Eclipse and, thankfully, it's not written 
in Java which seems to takes Eclipse all day to load.

The integrated Python shell recognizes your variables so while you're 
debugging you can interact with your code.

I could go on, but I've got to get back to work.
