What is the difference between ironpython and normal python for windows?

I would like to teach my windows admins at work some cool new tricks I  
have been doing on unix for years.  However, I am a little confused  
about what version of python to install.  Ironpython looks like it has  
some heavy integrations with WMI and silverlight which is really  
nice.  But, would I be able to add new packages to this version like  
httplib2 and other stuff in pypi?  What is the python for windows on all about?  How is it different? Would the typical linux  
users feel more at home with the version?
