Arcpy in other Python modules such as Ipython

I was using ipython on my Ubuntu OS back at my home and it was fantastic . When you work with an object, and you putted  "object." and then pressed Tab, it would show you all the classes that you had option to use. Also, you could put the arrow up and it would go back to the lines you have written before.

In my work, I'm learning to use python in ArcGIS 10.1 and found it very difficult without the resources I was used to.
I installed Pythonwin hoping it would solve my problems, but without seeing all the classes options I have, it became sort of difficult to learn by doing and I have to search through many tutorials.

Does anyone else feels the same way? Does anyone knows where could I get the same resources as I had in Ipython? I installed an Ipython but it doen't recognize arcpy.

Thank you!
