in thread Stop suggesting to upgrade perl

It's easier for users to update .Net under Win than update python/ruby/perl under linux.

Installing new versions of perl/ruby/python under *nix (I use MacOS & BSD rather than linux, but it's minimally different) is generally pretty simple, and I tend to have a number of installs of each on my dev machine (and sometimes on the production server). I use perlbrew for Perl and rvm for Ruby. I don't use much python.

    That's strange. Half of GUI applications, that I use under Ubuntu, is written in Python.
    Do you use at least once application written in python? Does it ask you upgrade python?

    I think OP was about "end users". So your experience upgrading your own programmer's tools is irrelevant.
