You keep repeating this nonsense even though it has been pointed out
to you in a neighbouring thread that many (most?) of the main linux
distros ship python 2.6 and not 2.5 or 2.4. For example Fedora 11 and
12 both ship python 2.6, others mentioned lots of other examples in
said other thread, anyone can look them up.
