Great that you want to help other linux users but next time you create a video, try to make it really useful to people. As mentioned above, there are not many reasons why I wouldn't install Python packages from my distro's repositories. And please don't register with a community just to post a link to your newly created video. This might be considered by many as spamming.

Apart from that, hi and welcome to LQ

seeing as i currently have 3 different installs of python
one is a OLD version for some OLD software that i NEED !!!
then the two from the suse repos


also if you are using Kali
you really DO NOT!!!! want to mess with the default
it is as touchy as fedora is about must use the default that is installed

and Debian repos have many versions in there

Good luck with that. For the future, it is not recommended to start threads self-advertising your own youtube videos or websites (let alone pretending that you have just FOUND an interesting video.) You can use your blog on this forum to announce thing like that. Also if you are not selling anything, it is a common practice to put a few links to your blog/videos in your signature.
