We've a bunch of windows servers stuck on python 2.5 since an API we use on them is shipped to us pyc's only - forcing us to stay with that version. Most of our other machines are on 2.6 or 2.7.

Subject: [TIP] Anyone still using Python 2.5?

Hi All,

What's the general consensus on supporting Python 2.5 nowadays?

Do people still have to use this in commercial environments or is everyone on 2.6+ nowadays?

I'm finally getting some continuous integration set up for my packages and it's highlighting some 2.5 compatibility issues. I'm wondering whether to fix those (lots of ugly "from __future__ import with_statement" everywhere) or just to drop Python 2.5 support.

What do people feel?
