teaching python in middle and high school. Its simple, checks syntax
and has a run button! (I'm currently evaluating geany as a
replacement, because kids struggle to get dr python working at home)

mind maps for older kids. vym has issues if you try to use maps on
different versions, and doesn't work at home.

I don't want to contribute to bloat, but you can see above why I use

I am also interested in hearing what others say. Such as, "we use X
for that purpose, because it does Y"

I would recommend  a newer iceweasel, if possible.
