Actually, for Windows, the docs don't recommend "python3", they say:
""" On Windows, invoke the venv command as follows:
c:>c:\Python35\python -m venv c:\path\to\myenv """
This should probably be altered to say "py -m venv" (or maybe "py -3 -m venv", but I don't think that's really necessary), as using the launcher is less tied to having your PATH set, or using an explicit path.
