python.org tell people to forget about python 2 and head into python 3, but many 3rd party module do not support python 3 at all.
For example, python 3 only ship with a tkinter gui module which does not have great reputation. If I am to use python 3, I have no choice but to use tkinter.

Is python.org want to kill python?

wxWidgets does not support Python 3 (yet), so for me it's a deal breaker. I'm quite happy with Python 2.6, no need to switch to 3 at the moment.
