It shouldn't be a hard transition. I would recommend learning 2.x
anyway. You are likely to want to use 3rd party modules (or you will
anyway). You won't want to wait for module support to be added in 3.0.
The 2.x series isn't going to go away for quite a while. I think they
are planning to continue to do releases all the way up to 2.9 or so.
Even then, the biggest thing that a new user is going to run into is
`print("stuff")` vs. `print "stuff"`.
