vendors). I recommend Free Software to friends when appropriate and even help them get started. I
naturally look for free software solutions for work problems as well. In fact, the Python project I a
working on was going to be a .NET application until I was able to proof of concept a better solution that just
so happened to be built on and with free software. I happen to also be pragmatic and when there are no Free
Software solutions that appropriately fit the bill, there are
some times when a closed solution is the best business decision. This was one of those times.
That being said, with regards to features, the closest open source project was Eclipse with PyDev.
However, for me it was fairly buggy, bloated (Eclipse!), and didn't provide the breadth or depth of
features Wing did. I'd have happily dealt with bloat if it were not for the instability.

I'll often fire up Wing.
