I have IDLE on my little Windows netbook.  I like how you can easily run a
program while in IDLE.

I think I scared myself off of installing python when it's already on my mac
mini (snow leopard), which incidentally gives you the option to run a .py
file with either 2.5 or 2.6.

Right now I'm using TextWrangler, saving to a specific dropbox directory and
then right clicking and running.

Ivan, is it difficult to install python on a mac from their site?
