I think it's wrong to have a different setup on different plateforms.
Python is a portable language. It's also a language you use for quick
scripts and from a lot of non professional devs.

Unifying the python experience and making sure it's easy for beginners
to get started is a very important goal IMO.

Python is actually quite good at it. But we can make it even better.
