If your idea is to learn the language and its tools while being on
you should start with Python 3.x. Especially if you don't plan to do any
immediate projects in it that could require third-party libraries.
If your idea is to learn the language to solve a problem at hand that
could require third-party libraries, start with 2.6.x or 2.7.x. Most 3.x
features are back-ported to either of these so you don't loose much
but also can use many 3rd party stuff since they are all 2.x compatible.
If someone asks me to say this in a single word, I always recommend
