Go to http://python.org/download/ , then click the link
Python 2.7.2 Windows Installer (Windows binary -- does not include source)

When downloaded, install it by double clicking. Python works smoothly on Windows XP,vista,7+, and current version don't work older os'es like win95/98.

Also after installing, you may want also want to install a text editor/ide for python(not essential but its make coding easier). For windows I would recommend installing notepad++.

Also you could see this http://wiki.python.org/moin/BeginnersGuide

Hmm yes of course. gedit is favorable text editor for many python developer. I use Geany for C/C++/Python coding on Ubuntu. But if you want to use Gedit then the way may be is

1. save a file using .py extension. Let its foo.py and its saved in Desktop folder. Then you will get syntax highlight(color in code).
2. To run the script, go to terminal. cp to the folder where you put your code. In this case "cp /home/User/Desktop/".
3. Run it by typing python foo.py

For geany on windows, you have to install the compilers by your self. You can see this page fo installing C/C++ compiler.

http://www.mingw.org/wiki/Getting_Started

Follow the "Graphical User Interface Installer" and "Environment Settings" instructions as on that page. Though for windows I won't recommend geany for new comers. Its took some time to configure it. I would recommend Dev-CPP from here http://orwellengine.blogspot.com/. When you would understand C/C++ and projects etc well enough, then Visual Studio Express.


For in Ubuntu, you should not have any problem with compiling C code with file extension .c . For compiling C++ code you have to install binutils package. Also one thing, don't save your code to other then your home folder or it will get a permission deny problem. For python, you should not have to do anything with Geany on ubuntu.

I have heard that it's easier if python is attempted at first, but, from your point of view it seems like C should be attempted first. May I know the reason behind your opinion? And FYI I didn't find python that hard as a beginner.

Please let me know as I wanna go a long way in this.
