This is surely one of the best open source projects.
I know I want to use NumPy, however easy_install for NumPy version 1.7.0 fails (writing out of sandbox), and the link to the project web site is broken ... is the rest of the software also so ... quirky ???
Good project! As it comes to Windows, I've found it is easier to use DMelt (jwork.org/dmelt/) using Jython scripts on the Java platform.
