in thread Perl 6 is going to get a lot faster in 2013

I feel a little sad to read comments like in this thread from chromatic. I've learned many from you, a very famouse guy in perl community, your book, your blog etc. And I do hope to always see your comments for helping perl improvement than some prejudice biasely.

I can understand your feeling about parrot, but, you have to admit by far, JVM seems be a better platform for perl6 than parrot, and whatever it be slow or not, it should not become a reason which you doubt others efforts, like the comments you leave here, like your blog in several days ago. Before pouring cold water, we, I mean guys who love perl, should at least provide our praise and encouragement.





I am trying to improve my English skills, if you see a mistake please feel free to reply or /msg me a correction

    JVM seems be a better platform for perl6 than parrot

    Based on what evidence? A few microbenchmarks written in an incomplete port of a language that isn't Perl 6? Or the fact that Parrot's effectively dead now?

    Until I see real programs running on Rakudo, I'm going to continue with my skepticism. These fact-free marketing posts from raiph about his hopes and dreams are, to me, empty promises. I have no doubt that people working on Rakudo have the best of intentions, but they're going to have to deliver usable software—to meet the promises they've made—to assuage my skepticism.
