• Python 2 vs 3

    From Nightfox@DIGDIST/BATTLEST/FREEWAY to All on Sat May 28 10:05:00 2011
    Hi all -

    I'm interested in learning Python more, and recently I was reading that Python is going through a fairly major change right now, from version 2 to version 3, which isn't quite compatible with v2 code. I was also reading an article that said Python 3 still lacks some library support that Python 2 has: http://wiki.python.org/moin/Python2orPython3
    That article is almost a year old though.. For those who have been using Python for a while, what do you think - How complete is Python 3 now? As someone who wants to learn Python, it seems like it would be best to learn Python 3 so that I'll be ready when v3 overtakes v2, but I'm curious about the state of v3 vs v2 right now.
