Maybe the difference is that Wing is from Python people while the ones you

For something completely different (microcontroller programming in C) I just

 From your posts I'm not sure whether you want an editor or an IDE,
where for me the main difference is the debugger and code completion. I would 
not want to miss the IDE features any more, even though in my first 15 years of 
Python I thought that a debugger is optional with Python ...
