FAIL: Arch Linux switch python executable to Python 3

Filed under

Today, I got an email from an user of one of my Python scripts asking why the script t does not work on Arch Linux anymore. As it turns out, the Arch Linux team decided to switch /usr/bin/python to Python 3.0 and use python2 for Python 2.X versions. By doing this, they decided to make their distribution incompatible to almost any Python script in the world.

Arch Linux’s decision to diverge from the rest of the world that uses python for Python 2.X and python3 for Python 3.X is stupid.
