Hello all

Would you consider a "not so intelligent move" for a newsbie to 
Python to have maybe version 2.7 and 3.x (if that's possible to be 
running together on the same machine) to have them run and be 
learning mainly in 2.7 and see differences in 3.x? In my case I am 
interested mainly in web applications with a database and if possible 
being accesing dbase since a projects still runs a big system under 
dbase format,  or definitely stay with 2.7 for a while until most in 
migrate it t o 3.x?

Thanks in advance
Jorge Biquez
