I have used PyCharm, but honestly, having a separate IDE just for Python is 
not practical since I can develop/debug Python right along side C/C++ in 
Visual Studio using an add-in.  If I needed to do so on a non-Windows 
platform, then I might not necessarily choose QtCreator.

I'm not saying the JetBrains wares are not good--quite the contrary--but since 
I'm a Qt developer, and I have used Visual Studio for decades, the choice of 
QtCreator for non-Windows platforms is a no-brainer.  And it's free, just like 
JetBrains' offerings (with the right license).

But be aware that you're talking to somebody who has written whole 
applications using nothing but vi and a command prompt.  I'm certainly not a 
/connoisseur/of IDEs.  ;)
