Yes, it's true that Splunk will use the Python libraries that ship with Splunk. You can remove the instance of Python that was installed separately from Splunk, but do not remove the Python that came with Splunk.

You should remember that e.g inputs or TAs could also use OS’s version of python. It’s not common, but time to time it’s mandatory to get things to do. Probably with v 8 even less used than earlier.
