None of them. 

I use a good editor in one window (I prefer Kate for larger projects, 
although Kwrite is good enough for single modules or scripts) and a 
good xterm in another. I can open as many tabs as I need in the xterm. 
I have at least one interactive Python session open, plus another tab 
for running unit tests or doc tests. The only thing I miss having is 
integrated version control, and consequently I tend to be lazy and 
avoid using it unless forced.
