I'm a statistics... I just got a Macbook and will likely use it as my main development platform soon. So far, moving from Windows XP to Mac OS has been fairly painless. I have not done any Python programming but did try out Crunchy and Rur-ple. I found out that Crunchy requires Python 2.4+ (I had 2.3.5 installed on the Mac), that it does not work with Safari, and that there is a "bug" so that the "tooltip" does not work with Firefox on the Mac. I was planning to bring my Macbook to Pycon but will have to reevaluate as I'd like the Drunchy demo to go as smoothly as possible. There also does not appear to be a sound module on the Mac similar to winsound or ossaudiodev... I also found a new bug with rur-ple, but have no time to look into it before Pycon.
Not having taken side in the emacs/vim religious war, I have to find a decent programming environment. On my PC, I used SPE which I really liked but I have read a lot of good things about textmate and nothing negative (other than the fact that it is not free). Any advice from Mac/Python users?
