in thread Perl in the "Microsoft Research Center"

If you take a look, before blame anything, they aren't using Perl to support it or to make softwares that work with it. They are developing new things with Perl and porting Perl resources to others.

For me this tell how Perl is practical and efficient, or why they aren't using their own technology to develop? Because Perl is already there and works very well.

    Ive heard that MS uses Perl as a part of their daily build and test processes. I dont know if it is (or for that matter ever was) true, but it sounds possible, even perhaps likely.

      Yeah, it's true. Perl was being used heavily in the build process. I don't know if they still use it or have switched to something else.
