Strawberry perl has Frozen Bubble, if you can manage to find the right version to download (one of the beta releases I believe). I don't know why it is not included in the regular releases.

    ActiveState has been unable to support the DB_File module for quite a long time (since 2008 IIRC). DB_File is handy if you need a lightweight high performance way to tie a hash to a database file (Berkeley DB). DB_File works fine in Strawberry Perl right out of the box. This was a big deal for me and prompted me to switch from ActiveState to Strawberry.

      Supporting DB_File is trivial, ActiveState chooses not to support it

        To all of the concerns, Active State is moving very fast towards business. Many of the important modules that you got initially are no longer available for free, Ex: DBD-MySQL Win32::GUI The stable versions like 5.10 do not provide many of these modules. You need a business edition and it costs $1000. Your very notion of Opensource is compromised.
