Boa Constructor has syntax-highlighting, code-completion, tabs, line
numbers, and an embedded interpreter.  It also does a lot of other
IDEish stuff and it's a GUI builder, too. I've never tried to run it
from a USB, though, and the interpreter (the "shell") is in a separate
tab, not on the bottom as you've drawn it.
