stevieb has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I'm really liking the new language. I've played with it in a limited capacity, and am learning new bits every day.

I'm quite interested in finding out from others that have been exposed to it what their thoughts are.

UPDATE: If you want to get going on Perl6, I found this link through the Perl6 link in moritz's signature. Just ensure that you use the first link in the howto so that you download 'Rakudo Star'. Don't be frightened off just because the tarball is on github; Git is not needed whatsoever. Just download the tarball, extract it as you would anything else, and then jump to the "Building Rakudo from the sources requires..." paragraph of the "Building the compiler from source" section.
