For Would-Be Python Users

If you are new to Python, or know someone else who is, you (or they) could do a lot worse that visit Richard Dooling's Seven Minutes to Hello World web page. It explains about the easiest way to get Python up and running on your Windows XP computer.

I am pretty sure it will run for Vista too, the only reservation I have being the need to run the installer as an administrator if you want to install Python for all users. Since most Vista systems are single-user machines anyway, this isn't likely to be a big issue.
