in reply to How to Implement Perl 6 in Ten Years
in thread The current state of Perl6

Python 3000 took eight and a half years from conception to its 3.0 release, and its changes were relatively minor

In a google tech talk, Guido specifically mentions that he doesn't want Python 3000 to go the Perl 6 way and the Perl 5 people just don't give a damn about it anymore!! Well thats the reputation Perl 6 has in the Open source community, It has just become an example of what not to do!!

    Guido is certainly correct. Eight and a half years and minor changes is far better than ten years with a completely new language.
      ten years with a completely new language.
      not ten years, don't speak too soon, let's wait together patiently and see how more time until Perl6 becomes usable.
