I'm in operations and I've spent much of my career writing code for the Python that worked on the oldest LTS release in my fleet, and for a very long time that was Python 1.5...

I was really happy, in some ways, when Python 2 was announced as getting no new releases and Python 3 wasn't ready, because it allowed a kind of unification of everyone on Python 2.7.

Now we're back on the treadmill of chasing the latest and greatest. I was kind of annoyed when I found I couldn't run Black to format my code because it required a slightly newer Python than I had. But... f strings and walrus are kind of worth it.
