I don't know whether to thank you for the link, or shout at you for 
sending eyeballs to look at such a pile of steaming bullshit.

I'd like to know where Alex gets the idea that the transition of Python 2 
to 3 was supposed to be a five year plan. As far as I know, it was a ten 
year plan, and we're well ahead of expectations of where we would be at 
this point of time. People *are* using Python 3, the major Linux distros 
are planning to move to Python 3, the "Python Wall Of Shame" stopped 
being a wall of shame a long time ago (I think it was a year ago? or at 
least six months ago). Alex's article is, basically, FUD.

More comments will have to follow later.
