Introduction to Python Downloads

Python's efficiency and ease of understanding have attracted more developers to use the language. Python has also been introduced as a curriculum in secondary schools for information and communication technology subjects. Python can be executed on Linux, Mac OS, and Windows systems, and there are two main methods for installation: downloading the official Python distribution and using Anaconda.
