The only difference between 2.x and 3.0 that will trip you up as a
beginner is that print is a function rather than a statement.  Unless
you're a colleague of mine, who started to learn Python a week ago by
poking its Unicode handling very hard :-)

On IDE's, I'm afraid I'm not going to be much help because I don't use
them.  I prefer to use a decent editor (Emacs in my case, others have
their own preferences) and run my scripts from the command line.  That
said, IDLE (which comes packaged with Python) is a perfectly decent
little IDE.  It's surprising how little you really need given the
flexibility and immediacy of working with Python.
