https://eev.ee/blog/2016/07/31/python-faq-why-should-i-use-p... is a fairly good summary. There are loads and loads of syntax improvements (I personally love the new unpacking), new features, and other enhancements.

Sure, you can continue using Python 2, and it's going to work for you. I guess you can also keep using Windows XP (no reason not to use it beyond the fact that Microsoft has gotten bored of providing security and bugfixes), and code using your PS/2 keyboard...




USB for keyboards is slower (noticable for some types of gaming) and does not support over 6-key rollover. So PS/2 is superior (for keyboard, not mouse) and not dead. Ever noticed around 2010 motherboards stopped shipping with PS/2, but today most for desktops come with a single PS/2 port again?

That's not even a hipster thing, it's quite mainstream with gaming keyboards...
