  23. Quick question. Isn't creating the python alias a little risky? Would this affect any system files that use python 2.7 and are not supported for 3.6? Or is 3.6 mostly backwards compatible

  24. hey corey,

    i have to learn python 2.7. because most 3d apps still using 2.7/2.6 and its not likely to change in near future. so is that mean i should not follow this tutorial?
