Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You do not have to  all Mac's comes with Python preinstalled. You can just user the terminal window and type: "Python" and you are in. And, of course, you can use TextEdit or something else to write longer Python scripts and save as files. Hope this helps...
