    Ubuntu 20.04 LTS Moves Ahead With Python 2 Removal - But Sticks Around For Derivatives

    Michael Larabel reminds us of Python 2's end-of-life at the start of the year, and how Ubuntu developers are working hard to keep Python 2 from shipping in Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. We are told it's already gone from the ISO with the remaining work in repository software occuring now. Ubuntu 20.04 will still have the renamed Python2 package available if users require it, with more details provided via links.
