I currently have Python v2.7.3. Is that compatible with the course materials used for this session? If not, what is the next step to download v2.6.8 from here: http://www.python.org/download/releases/2.6.8/? Thanks in advance!

    You need to install 2.6.x version it is stated on this website, check the note on the top of the table http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/electrical-engineering-and-computer-science/6-189-a-gentle-introduction-to-programming-using-python-january-iap-2011/assignments/

    There are no issues running two versions?

    According to this is possible http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4583367/how-to-run-multiple-python-version-on-windows and there is similar article if you are using linux so it should be ok.

    I tried to find the Windows Installer for 2.6.8 on the Python site, but it was not listed in the downloads, so I installed 2.6.6, which had the installer link. As far as my question about different version, I found out you just need to make sure the path in the code is going to the correct version of Python that you want, so two versions is okay.

    All 2.X versions are compatible with each other. Therefore, you have no need to install multiple versions or replace your existing one, just install the latest and greatest and update. As long as you don't go for a 3.X version, you'll be safe and happy! Good luck!

    @gonzo0481 Don't get smart with me! Jython's FAQ says it is compatible with Python code BEFORE 2.3. Any features added on afterwards will be missing though. So no, it wouldn't be safe to use in any academic course using 2.3+.
