Hello, I am relatively new to Python. I would really like to use Python for numerical and data analysis. I recently stumbled upon something called Intel Distribution from this article: http://www.infoworld.com/article/31...n-distribution-turbocharges-data-science.html I don't really know what a distribution is in this context. It sounds promising and I would like to hear if anyone has more knowledge on this. I have an AMD CPU and MSI GPU on my tower which I hope to replace soon for an Intel chip and Nvidia GPU. Will I be able to utilize this Intel Distribution in the meantime? Thanks Edit: I already have anaconda installed (though I'm not sure I have it configured correctly. when I run $ python, it gives me "Python 3.6.1 |Continuum Analytics, Inc.| (default, May 11 2017, 13:08:54)" so I imagine it's working. I am not yet familiar with applications like SciPy or NumPy so I haven't tested those. How should I go about checking if I have this Intel Distribution or installing via conda?
