in thread Threads and signals in Windows

When I started to use Strawberry Perl http://strawberryperl.com/ I got the possibility to install modules from CPAN.

That is such a clear indication of someone who doesn't know anything about Windows.

I've been installing from CPAN for years; but I don't use Strawberry Perl.

Using SP doesn't make it easier to use CPAN; or Perl. It only makes it easier to pretend you aren't using Windows.

And that is counter productive because it just means that people blames Windows for the limitations of the Perl port to Windows.

Which means the Perl Port never improves because the blame for problems is wrongly attributed.
