Best practice: python vs sage-python

Like some other users, I installed sage on a system that already has python, so I end up with two copies of python.

What is the best practice in this case?

It makes sense to restrict myself to consistently use only one of these (by setting the environment variables properly). Probably the Sage python would be better to use, so that installed packages are available in Sage.

Should I remove the original python I had installed, or just leave it be?

I would be happy to hear how other people have this set up and what are other considerations I should be aware of.
