    The MIT course uses version 2.6 (and explicitly recommends we install 2.6.x NOT 3.x): http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/electrical-engineering-and-computer-science/6-189-a-gentle-introduction-to-programming-using-python-january-iap-2011/lectures/MIT6_189IAP11_start.pdf BUT, version 2.6 was released around 4 years ago. I think I'm going to try the latest stable release, and if I have to, I'll reinstall version 2.6 later when necessary. Anyone know a good reason to follow the MIT course instructions regarding 2.6.x installation?

    2.7.3 includes some features of 3 but hopefully nothing that will interfere with the course material. 3 will definitely cause problems with the course material.

    2.7.3 This was recommended for use with the MITX 6.00x Introduction to Computer Science on-line course which has just started. As a complete beginner, some of the basics are not readily understandable.

    "YOU MUST USE 2.6.8 FOR ALL CLASS WORK" it will not be accepted by anything higher, its what MIT using for its coding classes. soz.
