I'm going to get into python and I was wondering if you guys could throw out some of the better IDE's for me to try out! I'm running XP 32 bit if that matters. Thanks!

I use Netbeans for most of my dev work. There is a python plugin available.

Netbeans

Is NetBeans pretty much the choice for most of the languages it supports? I've seen it recommended for multiple languages. I would be hoping to use it for Java programming.

Most IDE's are personal preference. It is a rather versatile IDE compared to most others, but I wouldn't say it is the choice. Its main language and focus is Java.

I downloaded and am looking at something called "PyScripter" because I was waiting for responses :). Do you know if it's any good?

Regarding NetBeans, it is an incredibly good IDE (esp for Java). However, there really isn't a very good reason for you to use an IDE at this point in time.

I would suggest using the Python interpretor until you've learned the language. Part of the appeal of a language like Python (or Lisp) is you can sit at the interpretor building things up in a "bottom up" style just adding things as you go along. Second, you'll eliminate having to learn an IDE in order to learn a language which can be a pita.
