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.
