True - but that entirely depends on your path.  Example:

Redhat (RHEL3) ships with python2.3 in /usr/bin
Adding an 2.5 version to /usr/local/bin

set PATH=/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin

"python" - will use 2.5

Conversely if you:
set PATH=/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin

"python" - will use 2.3

but if I wanted to ensure I was using 2.5 I would simply type
python2.5  I want to ensure that the python version I am using is at
lease 2.4
