in thread What's wrong with Perl 6?
Sing it brother! Quibbles over syntax miss the point IMHO. Perl 6's downfall will be its mind-boggling semantics.
I'll always have a soft spot for Perl 5 -- I thought it was the greatest thing since sliced bread for quite a while. Then I realized that TIMTOWTDI had a dark side. It didn't matter that I wanted to speak Perl "baby talk". Everyone else's source was speaking a different dialect.
In trying to be all things to all people, Perl 6 is TIMTOWTDI gone wild. I like to think of it as the quantum mechanics of programmming languages.
