He's not making it like Python and Ruby, instead he's going far beyond them.

    Okay so you didn't disagree that Perl is less correct.

    i am fine with your statement. I would like to see that Perl 6 is better than Python and Ruby, but timing is not on Perl 6's side.

    There is a big difference between "I wish perl 6 to be bad" and "unfortunately I think perl 6 only has a very slim chance". Like I said, I am waiting to see, but most of the people out there won't.

    As a matter of fact, I ask everyone not to wait. They should move on, and it is never wise to hang on one tree.
