    Since javascript and python are scripting languages you only need a simple text editor such as notepad to write your code.

    I've not used the Netbean IDE but from it's description it does support editing of languages other than Java and does indicate it supports Javascript but does not mention Python.

    Multi-Language Editor for Java and Dynamic Languages
    An IDE is much more than a text editor: The NetBeans editor indents lines, matches words and brackets, and highlights source code syntactically and semantically. The editor supports several languages including Java, C/C++, XML, HTML, PHP, Groovy, Javadoc, JavaScript, and JSP. It can be extended to support other languages.

    Why do you need other programs than netbeans? You don't strictly NEED programs and IDE's to write python and java like spookster says - they're plain text interpreted languages. Python for windows comes bundled with IDLE, an IDE for python.

    @Spookster - you do actually get python support for netbeans. There's a plugin for it. There's plenty of community plugins for netbeans that let it support multiple lanuages - not just the main ones listed (although I've not tested the python one myself).
