Sorry to spam the list with a silly question but I'm trying to convert a windows using colleague to python so that interacting with her
doesn't mean my having to convert her matlab code. She's an excellent scientist but has a low tolerance for complicated software installations and it seems like I'm currently losing the battle re. her installing scipy/numpy. I'm a linux type (though I understand the importance of being cross platform I rarely leave my linux womb, e.g. I currently do most work in ubuntu under parallels on a mac so don't even look much at OS X issues) so I'm not much use re. helping her with her installation issues. I know this type of question has been asked endlessly but I thought I'd try to get the latest suggestions on whether there was anywhere I could point her. She's tried to install the Enthought distribution (at the moment I forget what the problem she had with that was); is that still the best suggestion ? Do people recommend PythonXY in this type of situation (seems like a bit of baggage if you only need numpy/scipy) ? Anyway, sorry again for the spam and thanks for any suggestions.
