Anaconda Python distribution

See https://store.continuum.io/cshop/anaconda/.

Completely free enterprise-ready Python distribution for large-scale data processing, predictive analytics, and scientific computing.

It has the advantage that it installs everything in a specified directory. Say you need to use a machine where you don’t have root permission and/or this machine has an old Python version. Just install Anaconda and use the latest Python version it is shipped with.

Update (20160208)
I had Anaconda 2.3 and 2.5 came out a few days ago. How to upgrade to the new distribution?

$ conda update --all
$ conda install anaconda=2.5
$ conda update --all
