[SciPy-user] Python(x,y) scientific distribution
Sun Apr 13 04:02:00 CDT 2008
Sorry if my last e-mail was confusing, but the only platforms supported
by Python(x,y) at the moment are Windows XP/2003/Vista (Linux version is
being developed, and MacOS is not implemented).
I am familiar with Enthought distribution which includes a lot of
Python(x,y) is quite a different approach (we are not pretending to have
a better approach, just different) :
- it is a Python / Eclipse / Qt distribution : its long-term goal is
to provide a free alternative to commercial scientific "languages" (like
MATLAB or IDL) with a complete development environment ;
- the number of packages distributed has been intentionally kept as
low as possible ;
- and last but not least: Python(x,y) can be freely download and use
by anyone, without any restriction.
And, yes, of course, I can continue to post major release announces on
Thanks for your support.
