Over at "Redhat perl. What a tragedy." there is a perl programmer complaining how a bug in the RedHat provided perl made their code run slower than expected.
I say it is his fault he had this problem because he did not use a build policy. I think the system's perl belongs to the system and you should not be doing stuff like installing non packaged perl modules and running your production application with it.
True, RedHat has a bug in their app. But I think the developer owns more of the responsibility than the blog post leads people to believe. What do you think?
