Well, Python could be used as a 
scripting  language for routine jobs
in various Oses. 

But Python has been designed to be 
a cross-platform high-level general 
purpose programming  language from
the birth.

One can be sure that the investing in most of the programming concepts and skills  in Python 2.XX is still valid in Python 3.XX. 

Forget those non-investing imitators'  flase spamming claims.
