>the added burden of installing a better IDE means it's the one most often used by beginners.

Is it? My first reaction seeing Idle was "there's got to be something better" & started googling. I'd imagine most noobs would do the same.

That said my first encounter with Eclipse put me off that for life.

VS/VS Code on the other hand is a delight.
