I'm very happy to see this update to his last environment post. I adopted pipenv and pipsi partially due to his advice. Since then, pipenv had lost a lot of community faith and pipsi is no longer maintained. I've started migrating to pipx recently, and long ago purged pipenv from my projects. I dropped back to simple pip and venv for most projects, and am starting to adopt poetry.

Genuinely curious: has anyone had an experience where installing a library messed up the system python? I expect that my usage is pretty simple. My projects tend to depend on a handful of mainstream libraries. And I tend to rely on the more pedestrian features of python instead of the bleeding edge. So maybe it's just me but I struggle to imagine a case where my needs for development risk messing up the system python install.

It happened to me some years ago with CentOS, where the OS package manager is (was?) written in Python. Suddenly, I couln't update anything and wasn't sure which python library was the one causing the problem. Never again.
