in reply to Which one is better, Active state or Strawberry Perl ?

Sigh. Define "better".

For me, Strawberry is better on Windows, because it comes with a compiler and a sufficient make variant, so I can install XS modules simply using the cpan utility. I don't need any of the extras and the "walled garden" offered by ActiveState. Still, perl on Linux or any other Unix is way better than any perl on Windows for me, because I don't have to work around Windows' limitations there.

    True, but this doesn't help if the seeker can't Linux or doesn't want it for any reason. Perhaps the customer prefers Microsoft products.
