on Windows systems with problematic clocks and scheduling,

Where do you get that &^*(&&*^*^ from? The failing tests you mention are Perl's failures not those of the OS.

Blaming the OS for those failures is like driving drunk, stoned and blindfolded and blaming the car for the crash.


With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
