I'm not certain of this, especially on Windows, but I believe 'python' 
usually refers to Python 2 and the Python 3 interpreter is 'python3' on 
Linux. I'm pretty sure it's easy, if not trivial, to install them on the 
same machine.

Python 2.7 is much more recent than 3.0, but I'm sure the jump from 
2.6.4 to 3.0 was accurate at the time of 3.0's release.
