Please Help With CS

I decided to have a go at Computer Science, and wish to download Python. Which version should I download (I want to be able to do the things here on Brilliant). Please help.

Python 2.x has greater community support and it's most widely used version of Python but Python 3.x has much better and neat features.

2.x should do fine, as it is more widely used. And once you are fluent in 2.x ,then learning 3.x is no big deal as there are very less syntactical changes. Hope that helps :)

Thanks. I went and downloaded 2.7.10.

Yes, I too suggest the same Andrei :), Python 2.7 is more bug-free and stable.
