I think perl 6 will be great for people who love perl and want to see its flaws addressed. I wonder if there where people making the same complaints about previous perls? Or C++ versus C? Visual Basic vs. QBasic?

    I agree that there are hardcore Perl people, but most of people and company out there are not waiting for Perl 6, as a matter of fact, they are moving away from Perl (I don't want to argue how many major web site are running on Perl, I don't care, that's legacy). Perl 6 won't do anything more for them than other languages do.

    You won't get enough people and attention to get Perl 6 as popular as Perl did before.

      Not only do you keep posting utter rubbish, but your English is crap too.

      If you're so hell-bent on getting the worst reputation in the monastery then why don't you save yourself and us time by going to thepen and clicking on the button a lot - problem solved.

      Then you could just leave and go to a Python website and post lots of useful constructive stuff there instead of hanging around here being negative - or don't you actually have anything constructive to contribute?

        It is totally constructive to deconstruct perl's weaknesses. At least learn how to listen. Why are you so scared to hear different oppinions?

        I didn't come here to lose XP, so I won't do the stupid thing you suggested. I didn't come to get XP either, so I say what;s right.
