in thread Perl 6 and performance

Moritz' point stands: The merits of Perl6 the language should be judged independantly from the perceived shortcomings of Parrot the VM implementation and Rakudo the compiler (and please do not forget about Niecza on Mono/.NET).

Not really, a language without a great implementation is a dead language.

Non vere a lingua vacuus a valde implementation est a mortuus lingua.

      Same difference

        M.I.A. is a closer analogy. Leaves room for hope without encouraging it.

    Not really, a language without a great implementation is a dead language.

    The implementation only needs to be good enough. In fact, I do not know of any language which had a state-of-the-art implementation when going public.

    Most languages are developed behind closed doors and announced once the implementation has been judged good enough by its creator. That wasn't the case with Rakudo/Parrot, so perceptions were skewed from the get-go...
