Re: Starcluster, etc., in Public AMI?

The advantage of using the Anaconda solution is that you can upgrade the python libraries and keep a python version with all the library versions you like through easy install, pip install, and conda commands. You don't need a new AMI copy if you decide to upgrade starcluster there.
I believe you can control such things from the configuration file. Yet I did not try it so correct me if I am wrong.
I hope this helps you decide better.
