Python heaven...

I switched from VI to Zend IDE for PHP and felt like I went from the
dark ages to enlightenment in one go. Cant believe how much time I lost
not using something like this. Its not that it does things for me, but
the embedded function definitions alone mean less time looking up
syntax, and I finally got used to auto-completion (it did take a while
though) and now find it really neat that I can type only the beginning
of a variable and it will complete for me. The less keystrokes, the
better chance I have of being able to use my hand and fingers when I hit
60 ! :) and being able to jump from one program to another as I drill
down functions and libraries is a godsend .
