today an undergrad asked me if the school has a license for python, or if students have to buy it themselves

@rak they can just pay you for the license directly

@rak Take it as an opportunity to dispense some education

@rak I would have been tempted to refer them to the local animal control 😆 🐍

Seriously though what worries me more is the student appears not to have looked too closely at the Python website - OK you do have to either click on "about" or look at the "licensing" bit in the docs rather than just the front page but its not any more difficult to find than the actual coding info that is on the same site..
