Version 2.7 is a good choice, and it will be around for a long time: it 
will be supported until at least 2020, so you should get many years of 
use from it.

Do not be discouraged about Python 3. There are differences, but they 
aren't so different as to be a major barrier. By the time you have a bit 
of experience with 2.7, you will be more than capable of dealing with the 
differences with version 3. They are not different languages, think of 
them as slightly different dialects of the same language, like UK and 
South African English.
