OpenMandriva Lx 4.0 Punts Python 2 Out Of Its Base OS
The OpenMandriva crew shared that they are now "Python 2 free" and the OpenMandriva Lx 4.0 RC1 test candidate will soon be out the door. Python 2 though is still accessible from their archives for those needing to run legacy Python code.
Similarly, Fedora 31 is dropping Python 2 packages and Ubuntu 19.10 will hopefully move Python 2 from its main to universe archives in trying to no longer be dependent upon Python 2 code in their latest releases by 1 January 2020 when Python 2.7 will be officially end-of-life.
Besides being Python 2 free, OpenMandriva Lx 4.0 is also bringing many other changes.
