More than sufficient for my needs (scripting, web apps, most GUI 
apps) -- you can always drop to optimized C/C++ functions/modules 
if needed or use custom modules like numpy/numeric/etc for 
processor-intense work.

I use vim.  Others use emacs.  Some use Eclipse.  Some use 
WingIDE.  Etc, etc, etc.  Try 'em each and see what you like

Lots of options -- choose the one you like.
