@chris tell that to some of the dcc's I'm using that seem to be clinging to 2.7 for dear life

@obfuscated Py 3.0 release was in 2008 :) This has gone on for far too long. It is an interesting lesson on how much impact there is with significant backward incompatible changes in an interpreted language.

@chris is migrating from python 2.7 to 3.whatever really that big of a deal? I'm not super familiar with python, why are so many people clinging to python 2?

@gaurdianaq There are many code bases in Py 2 that require a significant effort to transition. And that diverts engineer time (and money) away from other things. This is not news about EOL for Py2 and anyone caught unaware has simply kicked the can down the road for far too long. Python advancement is happening in the Py 3 branch and the first Py 3 release was over a decade ago! Many who develop in Python thank Py2 but bid it good riddance so that we no longer need to attempt to support it :)

@chris makes sense to me, some people just don't want to embrace change XD
