Was the move to Python 2.0 as big a deal?

Just curious if people put up any resistance to 2.0 like some people do 
for 3.0. Was it as big of a change in the language, or was the 
transition smoother? It seems silly for anyone to say they would prefer 
to stick with 1.x versions at this point, so perhaps we'll get there 
with 3.0 eventually too.

Anyway, I'm just trying to figure out if the whole "I don't like 3.0" 
mentality (of some people, not all of course) is merely a result of it 
still being new and not even released yet, and will completely go away 
after a year or two; or if there really are such drastic changes that 
people won't want to adopt it at all.
