Well, emacs runs on Unix and Windows.  If that's good enough, I'd suggest you
go for it.  Another alternative might be IDLE, which should run on most
platforms.  It is distributed with Python and is written in Python.  It's okay
for editing and debugging Python, but I prefer emacs.
Other editors that have been mentioned by people in similar threads include
 - vi(m) (at least Unix and Windows)
 - Ultraedit (only Windows?)
 - Pythonwin (only Windows)
 - Jed (Unix, maybe Windows?)
And probably more.  But remember (from

Small minds -- small executables.
