My pleasure :)

You should find comprehensive answers on

Personal advice: Python 3 has a number of great and small improvements
over Python 2, and some of the problems I stumbled upon while learning
2.5 don’t exist anymore in 3.1.  Other people argue that 3.x won’t be
part of their work environment for years and recommend to stick with 2.x.

Further inquiries can be directed to the python-list mailing list.
A lot of them are probably already answered, too; the archives are
public and indexed by search engines.
