Old code and old programming habits may work as-is with 2.7 but not with a 3.x
So yes, there are two main extant variants of Python, 2.x and 3.x (and more if
you count even earlier versions).
2.7 helps to ease the transition, and provides bug-fixes and better efficiency
for the 2.x variant.
Cheers & hth.,
