Except when the module does not exist in pypi... In such case either
easy_install and pip finish by printing out that the module cannot be
found...

graphics.py is NOT distributed through pypi, you have to download and
copy it by yourself in an appropriate place from the author's Web site:

MS Windows is by far the most backwards type of technology that I can
think of. Using it is completely counter-productive.  I can't take it
serious. I have plenty of tools in my Linux boxes. I would never use MS
Windows as a foundation for a mission critical business application.

Hopefully I'm not the only one to think so...
