I could be wrong, but I think the point was that he's not using Linux,
while the majority of instructions for getting and using various
scientific libraries for Python assume that the user *is* using Linux.
One option would be to run Linux from a VM... but another would be to
use a 'packaged' version of Python such as Anaconda * or Enthought ** -
they come ready to go with all the more popular scientific packages
installed. They go to some lengths to address issues of package
compatibility and dependencies - something that can be more of a pain on
Windows than on Linux.
Shiny! Let's be bad guys.
