Python virtual environments

How many times have you run into pip install complaining about needing root access? With the latest versions of Python, you can easily create a virtual environment and I think it makes sense to create one in your home directory.

[cbrake@ceres ~]$ python -m venv pybrake
[cbrake@ceres ~]$ . pybrake/bin/activate
(pybrake) [cbrake@ceres ~]$ pip install gpt4all

venv is cool I have been using it for long now.
