Oh, sorry! I've mostly talked about it on the Scipy lists. Enthought, 
Inc. has been distributing a "sumo" distribution of the Python 
interpreter for the Windows platform with many third-party packages 
(particularly those geared towards scientific development) built, tested 
and ready to go all in one installer. It has been nick-named "Enthon". 
Enthought will be rolling out a Windows Enthon in the next week or so 
with a Linux release to follow.

MacEnthon is the same thing, more or less, for OS X. Right now, I just 
target the stock 2.3.0 interpreter. When Python 2.4.1 gets released, I 
might target that as well.
