[CentralOH] Conda Versus Virtualenv

I have been using conda/miniconda on Windows at work and virtualenv/pyvenv
at home on Linux machine.
But on my Linux machine, I have dropped pyvenv recently and just use
miniconda for now on.
It saves so much time from having to compile the source and the
miniconda/Anaconda distribution
has most of the packages I need.  For packages it doesn't have, I can still
use pip to install them.
The only disadvantage I can think of using miniconda is maybe you have to
wait a week or two longer
to get the latest and greatest version of a package or when a new version
of Python comes out, you'll
have to wait even longer still.  But that's minor IMO.
