getting Python

Hi, can anyone tell me how I would go about getting a copy of python?
Is there a trial version I could possibly download?

Python is copyrighted but freely usable and distributable programming language. Their home page here
http://www.python.org/doc/Summary.html
has installation binaries available for download. One note, if you’re on a slow connection you may want to consider which version you download as blender will be using 2.4 in the upcoming release. The current version of blender uses 2.3 as do many of the scripts that have been published.

Thanks for the quick response Marty.
