As others already pointed out, it doesn't really matter which
editor you use. Use the one you feel most comfortable with at
the moment.

Personally, I use Emacs' (Python Mode) to edit Python programs,
and try out code snippets in the Python Shell, either from
within a separate xterm, or, sometimes from within an Emacs
shell buffer. If you're on Windows though, it's probably easier
to simply use the editor that comes with IDLE. It's good enough
for most cases and does syntax coloring too. :)
