I think the name has caused you some confusion. wxPython is not a
different Python, it's a package for Python that displays GUI
components using the C++ "wxWidgets" library.

While there are other Pythons out there, for scientific work you
should have everything you need in the one you've got. You may have to
install an additional package now and then, but that's it.
