at the *same* time. IMO, 2.6 should be compatible with 2.5 while 3.0
is new style python. Currenly, most python projects works fine in 2.5.
When 3.0 becomes final release, those projects will be gradually moved

replaced by 3.0. I will not spend any time on studying 2.6. So why

Another question is about the future of C++. I am a C++ programmer.
Since I studied python, most of my projects becomes written in python
because of the better and simpler OOP representation. As a supplement,
I use python C extension for computational extensive jobs. Therefore,
for a relatively long time, I do not use C++ any more... Anyone is
same to me? What is your attitude to the role of C++ in the age of
