"Now you can choose between two commercial integrated debugging environments (IDEs) for Python. The Secret Labs' PythonWorks IDE was the first commercial Python IDE. They announced their 1.1 release just last month. Archaeopteryx announced their first production release of WingIDE last week. A single license for PythonWorks sells for $395. A single license for WingIDE is $95, student pricing is $45, and it is free for open source developers."

"Both IDEs handle multiple files as projects and have editors that provide context highlighting. PythonWorks has a very friendly-looking interface. It looks more like a web browser than the more traditional Visual C-style interface. It also offers an integrated GUI layout editor for Tk. PythonWorks is available on both Windows and Linux. WingIDE is currently only available on Linux."
