Hi guys. I've recently thought of using "learn python the hard way" to try my hand at python programming. The thing is, there's now apparently a book for both python 2 and 3. I'd like to know from people who know more about this than I do. Does it make a difference what version I use when it comes to creating audio games, and would I be set back if I were to use python 2 over 3?

Bar, bar, bar...
Bar is my name and to go bar is my aim...
Sometimes I'll go "Bad bar",
But in the end its always bar, ahem beer, ahem bar! beer bar!

The short answer is no, it makes no difference. There's an increasing amount of good libraries for Python 3 and good documentation, so going with it wouldn't be a bad idea, but going with Python 2 won't end the universe or anything either. It still has lots of available libraries, and switching from 2 to 3 is fairly easy. You may also be interested in other free books like How to Think Like a Computer Scientist, Dive Into Python, Think Python, etc.
