What is the difference between,

sudo apt-get install python-opencv python-scipy python-numpy python-pip

(from the book Getting Started with Raspberry Pi) and

sudo apt-get install ipython python-opencv python-scipy python-numpy python-pip

(from the site SimpleCV on Raspberry Pi); that is, ipython?

ipython is an alternative interactive shell for Python (better than the standard Python command line).

It is quite useful during development, as it allows you to quickly try pieces of code, load/reload code from a .py file etc...
