in thread Why Perl 6 is taking so !@#$ long

If the choice is between...
  1. A Haskell based Perl6 that runs on 90% of hardware but is available now and...
  2. A Parrot based Perl6 which runs of 99% of hardware, but is 5 years out
...I'd choose the Haskell/Perl6 solution and leave the worry over the other 9% of hardware to the future. (And I'd venture a guess that it'd be about 1000 times easier to get GHC working on NetBSD/SPARC then to get parrot in usable shape.)

    Agreed. It'd be nice if you weren't anonymous so I could have just sent this to you directly.
