> Dear Webmaster:
> As one of the maintainers of the pywin32 project, I would personally like to thank you for the excellent recommendation you provide for our project on the Windows Python download page:
> v v v v v
> Python for Microsoft Windows (XP and later releases)
> Python releases include an excellent Windows installer. See the individual releases for details.
> You may also wish to download Win32all, Mark Hammond's add-on that includes the Win32 API, COM support, and Pythonwin extensions. It's available from the pywin32 project on SourceForge.
> ^ ^ ^ ^ ^
> However, may I emphasize, again, that use of the term “win32all” for the product is years obsolete.  When you next have an opportunity to update this page, you might want to change that term to “pywin32”.  Also, to prevent confusion, you could mention that “pywin32” is also used on 64 bit versions of Windows.

May you do good and not evil
May you find forgiveness for yourself and forgive others
May you share freely, never taking more than you give.
