comment How do I configure easy_install to use the right Python interpreter?
I would restore from your backup: ) Actually in this case do as I say in the answer and use the /usr/local/bin python

That article is not from python.org and so is not the official doc - and deleting that path is wrong as it breaks any Apple an possibly third party code that uses python - that delete does explain your error message as you have broken Apple's python which all the files min /usr/bin run

No - never touch anything in system directories - see /usr/local./bin and install easy_install from that python

comment Are computers with more RAM potentially faster if not all memory is usually in use?
@PTwr - in that case the OS should be caching those files and should not give that much speed up - a RAM disk might help if you are writing - but measure the speed difference to see if it is worth it

comment Switching between Java 7 and 8 in OS X
There are multiple JDK's installed correctly on my machine it is Oracles's preference plugin that does not allow switch from 1.8 to 1.7, from the command line with a full path they all work successfully. /usr/libexec/java_home -V lists them all - and the Java 7 preference pane allowed the choice of the Java 7 JREs
