The time since Python 2 got any improvements is long in the past, and it
will never get any more.

It is rapidly becoming the case that new libraries just don't support
Python 2, for the same reason.

Rather than learning the dead-end Python 2, you should be using the time
better by learning Python 3 which is actively-developed and will serve
you much longer.
