Hi there.  This may be a stupid question but figured I'd ask as it would make my life 1000x easier.

I'm a GIS guy, turned mobile/web GIS developer.  I do most of my work using objective C (iOS development) and Flex (web).  Thus, I'm mostly working in an OSX environment.  I have bootcamp with windows on my machine and arcgis etc installed there, but rarely need to switch over.  The one exception happens to be when I need to do up GIS related python scripts.

So, is it possible at all to develop these scripts from OSX or am I forced to switch over to windows to do this?
