if I want to have a painless Python installation build against Intel MKL on Windows, one obvious choice is to just buy the EPD package. However, 
as I already do have a C++ licence of the MKL library I was wondering if I could just install the Python(x,y) -distribution and then take one of the NumPy-MKL binaries provided 
by Christoph Gohlke. Is it simple as that? Any downsides, will SciPy work as well? On the plus side, I would get Spyder2 without hassle and it looks nice to a former Matlab user.

I apologize for such a simple question, I would have tried it myself but this is for my work where only IT support has the admin rights and I have mac at home. I want it to be as 
clearcut for them as possible so I get things up and running. I did try to search the internet and the list but did not find a conclusive answer.

Many thanks in advance for any help.

All the best,
