Linux users have the additional option of using pre-built Python dists from Redhat, Ubuntu, etc.
     6We provide a single-file install distribution for ([InstallWindows Windows], [InstallMac Mac OS X] and [InstallLinux Linux]) that installs Python, the required packages and then downloads the latest version of GSAS-II.
