IPython for Windows
Installation instructions: http://ipython.org/ipython-doc/stable/install/install.html#windows.
The important thing is to install IPython as administrator. This way Start menu shortcuts will be created and you can launch IPython easily. The IPython shortcut calls ‘C:\Python27\python.exe “C:\Python27\scripts\ipython-script.py”‘ in my case and I don’t want to type all that each time I want to launch IPython :)
