The fact that I'm probably representative of most of the people you want to talk to in the Perl community is. I'm 25-35, work 8-12h/day, have a family, and spend time hacking on OSS code. I don't have time to play on Battle.net. In fact, if I were to install that crap, I'd fail at everything I'm representative of (except the age part).
Oh - and I don't have a Win32 machine. At all. Anywhere in the house (except for the teen's computer that doesn't connect to the Net). I have a Win32 VM for IE testing and that's it.
My criteria for good software:
- Does it work?
- Can someone else come in, make a change, and be reasonably certain no bugs were introduced?
