This is normal. Virtual environments are not isolated from the standard

Interesting. All I know about virtual environments is what I read on the
net. I always see them recommended as a way to keep from messing up the
default python, so I thought isolation was their purpose.

You're thinking of isolating packages that are installed in
site-packages, not the standard library. There's no point in copying
and recompiling the entire standard library in every virtual

Just curious. So do they share parts of the standard libray? What happens if the version of python I have in a virtual environment is totally different than any python available from the os? Say version 3 vs version 2 in the os.
