This question already has an answer here:
I have just installed Ubuntu 12.04 which comes with Python 2.7. I have installed Python 3.3, so now I have both versions. For example, if I type python in the terminal I get version 2.7 and if I type python3.3 I get that version.
I don't see why I would need 2 versions (?) so how do I uninstall Python 2.7? And if I do so, will the "python" command then point to Python 3.3?
