Ok, I do find later on where it says to do something different on Windows. However, the first "Note" box in "28.3. venv" specifies using "python3". It does not say that this is for non-Windows systems. This should be changed.

Also, the path specified, "c:\Python35\python", would not be the default location for a Windows install. "C:\Program Files\Python36\python" or "C:\Program Files (x86)\Python36\python" should be specified.

I detest that it is this complex and verbose, but it is. Glossing over it does not help the user.
