After reading a blog post titled "The Abysmal State of Python IDEs" (which I won't link to because it's minformative, but it's easy to google by title), I wondered how the author managed to pick such a lousy group of IDEs to try. He tried "ActiveState" (does he mean PythonWin?), DrPython, SPE, and ScrIDE, only one of which is in the top 10 google hits for Python IDE.
The google top 10 include Eric, Wing IDE, Radio Userland, SPE, PyDev, and Komodo. The Yahoo and MSN top 10s are similar. Except for Radio Userland, this is a much better group to start with, and one that in fact does include what I think are the only 3 Python IDEs worth trying.
So how does a newbie end up picking such a lousy group of IDEs to try? The only likely possibility seems to be that he went to the top google hit, the python.org wiki page. Or possibly he went off of the top MSN hit, the c2 wiki Python IDE page. Both are (rather, were) heaping wads of products that mostly weren't IDEs at all, or were IDEs for other languages that happened to include Python syntax coloring.
Syntax coloring and maybe a Run button doesn't qualify you as a Python IDE in 2008, guys. (Sorry, IDLE.) Integrated means you need to integrate something nontrivial, preferably a debugger, although gui builders can also count.
So I organized the python.org IDE page by feature set and moved the non-IDEs to the Editors page, even if a pedant would note that they were IDEs, just not really for Python. That's not what 99.9% of people are looking for when they go to a Python IDE page, so let's be useful rather than pedantic. I also elided the non-IDEs from the c2 page.
