I'm giving Emacs a try and I just have one question why the hell is it so damn complicated and confusing?! What is the point?? Is this a complete waste of my time trying to figure it out?

Other answer:

anders:
Eclipse might be better. "Emacs" is just a text editor, not a IDE.

I prefer Jedit. You can get it for Windows, Mac and Linux. It has a pretty powerful macro language.

LosMatix:
Usually emacs is a learning editor. It's really powerful in a sens where you can learn to navigate Linux file system
Andi:
Editor….
on a Unix / Linux system : vi
On windows : GVim (vi for windows) or often for smaller files Notepad++ (as it has nice auto/colored formatting)
brilliant_moves:
IDLE is quite a good IDE for python. I find it very easy to use, and there are linux and windows versions.
abc:
geany. yes vi, emacs is a complete waste of time now because gui editor is now available. gui editor won't need its user to remember keystroke to save, search, etc
amania_r:
Pycharm is probably the best. Eclipse with the Pydev extension is pretty good too.
