I +1 all this.

The "live" debugger is heavenly. A real lifesaver.

I'm coming to enjoy the testing tool a lot also - really nice to click on a 
failing test and be sent right to the source line.

If you have a multi-monitor setup, the ability to arrange your tools and 
windows independently is powerful.

Wing is one of those "Just Works" tools. I've been using the v4 beta for more 
than a month now. It's solid.
