in thread Perl 6 ... dead?
It's coming in late to the battle between the JVM and the CLR and, to a lesser extent, the various Smalltalk/Lisp VMs. With implementations like Jython and IronPython proving that you can implement dynamic languages reasonably on the JVM/CLR that's going to be a tough fight to win - whatever the technical merits.
You forget its financial and platform availability merits - it is free, and should run *anywhere* Perl5 runs - which is any platform that can run C.
BTW, the list is asking for volunteers all the time. Infact, there were 2 calls for help today, and They are always looking for testers.
