I presume the email below is about the Windows binary. Does the AMD64 
release work on intel 64bit and can we make the wording clearer on the 
download page?

The current description is " Windows AMD64 binary".

All the best,

Should I use the AMD64 version of Python on an Intel 64 chip? I know 
those 64-bit implementations are very similar, but are they similar 
enough that your AMD64 will work on Intel?

If so, perhaps a note should be placed on that page to help avoid 
confusion. Explicit being better than implicit and all.

Thanks for your time,
