My apologies to the list if this is a double post. My email client
tried to send with the wrong email address.
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.
