If you are new to programming as well as Pyton I recommend
you get Python 2.6 rather than Python 3. Python 3 has a lot of
changes and most of the beginners material hasn't caught
up yet. It will be easier to get answers to your questions if
you stick with v2.6 and then when comfortable with that move
to v3 aand learn about the differences.

Sometimes newest isn't the best.
