FUD surrounding Perl 6 is the single most important reason why Perl is no longer considered for large projects/New Projects any more. Most of the Perl stuff going on currently is small scripts or sysadmin level work. As a matter of fact people are beginning to look at it as an awk like utility. After all Perl 5 will some day will die out of bit rot and there is no certainty that Perl 6 will ever be ready some day.Why should some body build serious stuff on such an platform whose future so uncertain?
