python.exe and pythonw.exe are both Windows executables. There are no non-
Windows executables in a Python for Windows package.
python.exe is used for console apps or interactive sessions.
pythonw.exe suppresses the console window. You use it to launch GUI apps
that don't need a console. You can't use it for an interactive session,
and it makes no sense to start it without also specifying a Python
program to run.
Python source files named with the ".pyw" extension are associated with
pythonw.exe, while ".py" is associated with python.exe.
