in thread My 2004 Perlish Wish

I'm quite happy that Perl 6 hasn't arrived yet. And I'm still optimistic that Perl 6 will arrive.

I'm happy because I've been following the language design and there are things that had we rushed to implement would have been a big waste of all of that volunteer effort. Oddly enough, keeping up with the language design is also why I'm optimistic.

Have you ever heard "good, fast, cheap: pick two"? Since very little money is involved (a few grants but mostly unpaid volunteer work), we've pre-picked "cheap". That just leaves a choice between "good" and "fast". I think everyone agrees that we want something good.

    Best wishes. I don't care whether it's cheap, as long as I don't have to pay. Java is not cheap, but it is zero cost to me, just like Perl does.

    There is a reversed movement going on nowadays, some people started to move away from open source. People are finally pissed by the I-didn't-ask-you-to-use-my-shit attitude.
