So for new users (without Python install): "Install your preferred copy of Python, and use the command py to run Python (either to run a script, or for interactive use)".
What? I thought we just agreed it should be "python"! :)
This brings us full circle back to the reason I interjected in this thread: why are we making the standard invocation of Python different on Windows?
Because for me, personally, I don't view cross-platform compatibility of "the command you use to invoke Python" as a goal. At least not until it's possible on Unix for "python" to invoke Python 3.
I will happily concede that your goals are different. Paul
