What programmer tools (editors) are used/suggested to get started w/python, etc?

As a beginner, I'd like to learn a little bit about the code, etc., for askbot.

I was a basic, pascal, & shell programmer many, MANY years ago ;) I might like to learn and contribute to askbot if I can get myself up to speed with the language and tools.

I will be working on a Windows Vista laptop, and Win desktop, if that matters.

Any reason I can't set up linux, python, etc., on my win box and test out the script before launching a site? What package(s) would you use to do this in the most expeditious manner?

Actually, I think maybe I'd bet better off with a host and simply doing the editing, etc., from my pc than trying to 'do it all' from home. A small hosting fee is no problem. I'd like recommendation for a USA host that'll let me start cheap (VPS) and has capabilities to scale me up to ded machine when needed.

Any advice is appreciated!

Thanks!
