    Phoronix: Red Hat Confirms RHEL 8 Will Drop Python 2

    While it could have been pretty much assumed up until now that Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 would ship without Python 2 considering that next enterprise Linux OS release isn't even out yet, its long-term maintenance support, and Python 2 reaching EOL at the start of 2010, but now it's been made official...

            My 1st reaction was "that will piss off a lot of my team mates" ... ie lots of python2 code ( dev/ops ) will need to be fixed. But then I remembered ... we still have CentOS 6 boxes around, and no real plan to upgrade them.

              Awwwwwww, shucks Anvil. I would have thought you'd have fixed all this missing functionality by the time Redhat 8 comes out? Or is bitching in forums the extent of your effort?

                    Isnt migrating from Python 2 to 3 really straightfoward, unlike some other transitions?
