That will take you a long time. Better to use it writing software 
Learn the libraries you need as you need them.
If you need something remember to look in the library first...
I've been using Python for 12 years now and only used
about 30% of the modules in the library.

If 2.6 works stick with it for now till somebody in Ubuntu land
fixes the issue.

I still use 2.4 on my netbook, 2.5 on my Mac and 2.6 (and 3.1)
on my desktop PC. I've been thinking of giving 2.7 a whirl but
I'm in no hurry...
