Overall Satisfaction with Anaconda

Anaconda is a standard installation for our python coders. Our python coders stretch across multiple departments so it should be considered being used by the whole organization. Anaconda makes it easy for us to standardize getting a base working environment ready for everyone. From there it makes is easy for users to install required packages.
  • makes installation of python very easy
  • great environment manager
  • very easy to install python packages
  • pricing could be improved to allow better entry for team usage
  • some of the packages in pip not available via 'conda'
  • the package manager is kind of slow
  • very easy installation
  • easy to manage packages
  • the default packages installed has most of the required stuff our data scientists needs
  • we use the community edition (free), and it improves performance so 100% ROI right away
  • takes longer to install than regular python because it comes with many packages
  • ease of installation is a huge plus
Anaconda includes many standard data science packages where as the regular python installation does not.
Depending on use case, some may feel Anaconda may be "bloated"
For ease Anaconda is better, for minimizing extraneous package installation, the regular python installer is better
Anaconda is great for a beginner data scientist

Anaconda is great for setting a standard development environment for beginners. it is a very complete base deployment and does not require anything else to start running some basic datascience packages. while it allows you to install the packages via 'conda' the packages are not always the latest compared to pip.
