that is IDLE.   It looks and works the same whether I am in Windows or
Linux.   It is not real fancy, but it does has a good text editor with
reasonable features and the interactive window for testing and program run.
It also supports enough debugging functions to be helpful.  It is very
simple and often comes with the Python distribution. (comes with the Windows
distribution, separate install on Linux)

Just my 2 cents worth.   A buddy of mine prefers to program using the Kate
editor on Linux.   I sometimes use gedit on Linux and Notepad++ on Windows.
  In the end, the best IDE/editor is the one you know and feel comfortable
with.  I suggest you start with IDLE and see if you find some reason not to
like it.
