I know and you still:

- have to use py -m on windows, python3 linux, python in virtualenv...
- install pip manually on linux
- make sure the system path is correctly set

Stuff that they will forget on the next install, or miss when changing
plateform.

And assume that stuff in any tutorial you make they know this stuff.

This is a strong barrier or entry IMO.
