    One of the most important new features of `Movable Python
    <http://www.voidspace.org.uk/python/movpy/>`_ is that it can work with
    multiple interpreters. That can be other distributions of **Movable
    Python**, an installed version of Python, IronPython, or in fact any
    executable (or batch file or a Python script) [#]_.

    If you have multiple **Movable Python** distributions, you can test
    programs with any version of Python from a single interface. You can
    also use the same interface to launch interactive interpreter sessions
    for any of the interpreters.

    The **Movable Python Mega-Pack** comes with all four distributions of
    Movable Python (Python 2.2, 2.3, 2.4 and 2.5). It also comes with
    `IronPython 1.0 Final <http://www.codeplex.com/IronPython>`_. It is
    pre-configured with these interpreters (the default is Python 2.4).

    For a screenshot of the mega-pack and MovablePython.NET, see :


    The **Movable Python Mega-Pack** costs £11.99 [#]_, around the cost of
    two and a half distributions. You also get a couple of freebies. You
    can obtain the Movable Python Mega-Pack from :

    `The Movable Python Groups Page

    `Nanagram <http://www.voidspace.org.uk/python/nanagram.html>`_ the
    anagram maker is a fun program for making anagrams. It's especially fun
    to make anagrams of your friends names.

    This normally costs £5 for the full version.

    The other freebie is **MovablePython.NET**. This is an experimental
    build of Movable Python, written in C#. It isn't a stand-alone
    interpreter, but a GUI launcher.

    It lacks many of the features of the 'standard' Movable Python, but has
    a nicer GUI and a few extra features.

    These include :

    * Auto detecting any installed Python
    * Assigning system wide hot keys to scripts
    * Drag and drop

    This version will probably provide the basis of a GUI update for the
    next version of Movable Python. If you purchase the Mega-Pack, you have
    full access to all the individual distributions (including free updates
    for a year), **Nanagram** and **MovablePython.NET** and a single
    package containing all the distributions. This is pre-configured, and
    weighs in at 80mb.

    ... [#] So Movable Python can act as a GUI for any program, including
    passing command line arguments. You may
    never need to use the command line again.
    ... [#] Once Python 2.5 final is released, this will also be raised: so
    be quick.
