I lurk on the perl6 internals list, and I must say that I have to clear that folder *often* because of its activity. So what if it takes 1, 2, or even 6 years to get a stable parrot platform. The benefits of such a platform are great enough to wait. Besides, what is the rush? The current Perl is great, and because of the Ponie project, you *should* not even have to rewrite your Perl 5 wizardry in Perl 6.

Parrot is going to be a long term project, and before Perl 6 comes out, Parrot has to be a stable *platform*. This could take years, and since there is no dire need for the next generation of Perl, I think that we can exercise some patients.

May I suggest lurking on the perl6 internals list?

With that being said, I am more excited about Parrot than Perl 6 because if it accomplishes its goal, it will usher a whole new era of "write once, run anywhere" like Java was *supposed* to do...

BTW, if anything is dying, it is *BSD ;) .. j/k
