I use 2.7 out of necessity for work since when I script, it has to be os
non specific. The less I need a user to download, the better! Macs are
preloaded with 2.7 and the "security" practices my company has in place,
prevent 3 from being used effectively.  Especially any subprocess functions
in windows. its a bit of a headache since I want to use 3 but am finding
even personally, I've been flocking to 2 simply because its becoming more
familiar. The whole mentality of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".
Interesting article though! I have been surprised at the seemingly lack of
steam 3 has among the python-ers. Ive encountered hardcore 2 or 3-ers and
rarely someone for both.

Based on this article, I'm curious about folks' usage:


I'm not advocating 2 or 3, but I find this interesting, especially as I've
only been in the Python space for just about 2-3 years, and still never
sure when to start a project in 2 or 3. (I'll admit, all new projects of
mine have been in 2.7)
