I was sure that was the case re: python.org installation.  It's strange that it installed in two different locations,  I really have no idea how that might have come about.  FYI I've included a pic of the file pathways when you look at the interpreter photo.  I'd first installed python using terminal btw.

The major differences w.r.t. a *nix installation are having an “odd” sys.prefix, and having different sys.prefix values for different feature releases.
