Initially you may think it’s not worth paying and that there are better free options, which is definitely a lie we once tried to live with. It has everything you may ever need in .NET world, code analysis and debugging works super well and all the SQL/noSQL related integrations are just next level compared to the competition. It’s worth every penny.

IDLE is a good option to run small scripts directly on the console, and that's it. It is a good exit when you don't want or need to open a proper IDE like Pycharm.

Usability
JetBrains
Rider is a great IDE with extensive C# refactoring support and .NET-specific knowledge. This is great for building .NET applications but for our purposes, the Unity specific suggestions are really helpful.
JetBrains Rider is great as an editing and debugging environment. It reliably connects to the Unity editor and allows debugging, which some IDEs are not as reliable at doing.

The IDE Python IDLE is a good place to start as it helps you become familiar with the way Python works and understand its syntax.
This IDE allows you to configure the environment, font, size, colors, .....
It also looks like any simple text editor for any operating system, I work with Windows or Linux interchangeably, and you don't have to learn to use the IDE before programming.
Once the IDE is executed you can start programming directly in it.

Support Rating
JetBrains
Customer support provided by JetBrains is quite fast and effective. The issues we have encountered were solved within days, which we find reasonable and a very adequate time frame. Bug fixes are added to releases depending on their severity which makes perfect sense. However, we have not encountered any issue which we would consider to be a major problem.

Python IDLE support is what the community can give you. As it is free software, it does not have support provided by the manufacturer or by third-parties.
In any case, for most of the problems that normal users can find, the solution, or alternatives, can be found quickly online.
As this IDE is made in Python, the support is the same group of Python developers.

Rider is hands down smoother and way less glitchy than Visual Studio Enterprise. There are way more refactoring capabilities and spell check so that your code is readable, maintainable, and easy to follow. Since Rider is cross-platform, our developers are no longer constrained to only using Windows. We can now get a familiar development environment across Mac, Windows, or Linux!

Python IDLE is very easy to use compared to PyCharm. So for simple python scripting, Python IDLE is preferable to PyCharm, which has relatively steep learning curve. Compared to Python IDLE, PyCharm is more resource intensive, which may be worth it when comes to large projects, but PyChram does not provide any extra value for simple scripting.
