DR.PYTHON (drpython.sourceforge.net/)
From what I have heard it's very good.I have never used an IDE for python,gedit and terminal.

The sticky has links for this topic. For Python, gedit with its plugins is very good for Python and very easy to use.

Yes, I agree with LaRoza.

After trying various IDEs and text editors I went back to Gedit with its wonderful plugins.

Try Idle (I really don't like it though, but it comes with Python), Crimson Editor or Geany.

Eclipse with pydev. Gedit with plugins, or geany. All of them work for me.

Why would you program on windows?

Linux is kind of built for programmers and Windows is built for the average person. You being a potential programmer (lets hope it happens) would in the long run be far better off using Linux.
