The main reason for using Inno Setup is that it is free. Then I quickly 
saw that it is powerful and easy to use. And I don't like Microsoft too 
much in general, and that's also one of the reasons why I preferred to 
stay away from MSI...

I've never used py3exe though, and I can't find an homepage about it, so 
I don't know how it is related to py2exe...
