Those who maintain the warehouse.

There are such standards - but not anyone is following them. What you
have to understand is that unix is not *one* OS, but a (quite large)
family of OSs.

Installing Ubuntu is quite straightforward. IMHO even simpler than
installing any "recent" (ie >= NT4) version of Windows.

Fine. But anyway, you have to face the fact that your OS doesn't provide
a proper package for recent Python versions, and that this is by no mean
the responsability of the Python team. So you're left with the following
- complain to the company selling Linspire until they provide this package
- try to install Python from sources
- install another OS
