Python 3.0 makes a big break

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 86.128.248.50] on October 16, 2008 10:52 AM
I really like python, but this was a foolish decision and python must revert it or become fragmented and replaced. :-(
The hope is someone creates a way of using python 2.x libs in python 3. Some kind of translation layer.
They don't have to do a perl and keep every previous syntax so you can mix them to create write only code, but we need those 2.x libs! Read your history and compare languages and platforms that did and didn't maintain backwards compatibility. This really upsets me because I really like python and was just beginning to convince people at work we can use it.
