But this is a tool that is a part of the python distribution and often
recommended to python beginners as their first IDE. So IDLE is
responsible for the first impression on Python to many.
If IDLE is considered as of low quality and ugly, after so many years,
why it is not fixed or replaced?.
I'm just wondering.
