My Ubuntu is 14.04, which has Python 2.7.6 by default.
The latest Python 2.x is 2.7.9. I am thinking whether to install 2.7.9 from its official site, just in case that something is available in 2.7.9 but not in 2.7.6?
If I install python 2.7.9, is it a goo uninstall my 2.7.6? Does Ubuntu 14.04 depend on python 2.7.6 specifically?
So I can't uninstall 2.7.6,right?
How can I avoid overwriting my default 2.7.6 when I install 2.7.9 from its source?
If I install 2.7.9, will I have to call it explicitly to distinguish from calling 2.7.6? How can I make it the default one for my use (i.e. the command
pythonwill be 2.7.9), while letting the system using 2.7.6 as its default one?
