I am using python for years but still curious about best IDE to suggest newbies.
IMHO - too many choices with no clear winner and each with its own flaws.
For me two crucial features are: good autocompletion and ability to
step over code in debugger.
I'd try Eclipse+PyDev first and then additionally check PyCharm ($$$)
for comparison (to see how "best free" compares to "good commercial")
