Is there a particular reason why IDLE is chosen (cross-platform, simplicity, …)?

It would be nice to have a section on Pythonista for iOS.

Any chance you could do the same with Anaconda, including their version of venv?

possible to install from Windows 10 store. I just did it since I only had Python 2 installed on Win machine. Actually I ran python3 from Win10 command line and it launched Windows 10 store with Python3 already selected.

Though very similar to what you’ve walked through, as an extension of the Windows videos, it would be good to show how to install/upgrade Python if using the Windows Subsystem for Linux: docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wsl/about

If you’re using WSL, the install instructions are the same as the Linux sections of this course. WSL is just Linux. No different for installing Python.

Yep, understood. Suggested this as a mention in the Windows videos that that option exists.

Thanks Santosh, I’ve added a note to the first lesson in the course to point WSL folks in the right direction :)

@chikezieamadi what happens if you type idle (without the 3)?

Just to confirm: You’re sure that you successfully installed it like shown in this lessson?
