I use Arch Linux, it has Python 3.0 and 2.6 and 2.4.  Below are some
common packages and their version numbers. I wouldn't however
recommend Arch to a new Linux user, it's not Ubuntu. However once
installed and configured, it's very easy to maintain.

python3 3.0-3
python 2.6.1-1
python24 2.4.6-1

wxpython 2.8.9.1-1
pykde 3.16.2-1
pygtk 2.13.0-2
pyqt 4.4.4-1

eric 4.2.4a-1
scite 1.77-1
ipython 0.9.1-1
python-cheetah 2.0.1-2

django 1.0.2-1
cherrypy 3.1.1-1
pil 1.1.6-5
pylint 0.15.2-1
beautiful-soup 3.1.0-1
