Ubuntu 16.04 wrong default Python version
Ubuntu 16.04 made Python 3 the new standard, while Python 2 shouldn’t even be installed by default.
On my 16.04 droplet version 2.7 starts up by default, v3 is also there but it has to be called specifically.
Just wondering why DigitalOcean changed the default version back to 2.7
Is there a specific reason for this?
