Under Windows, there isn't much moral difference between a conda install
(really a Miniconda or Anaconda install) and a python.org Python
install.  You can even install Anaconda or Miniconda system-wide.

(Miniconda is a minimal install of Python + conda, while Anaconda is a
pretty large selection of packages in addition - though not the entire
official repo contents, and not counting community packages)
