do share your conclusion
My main point was just to show appreciation for one of the nice posts in this thread. Loosely implied is also an admiration of the work that has been done on this huge, volunteer project.
But, in answer to your (anonymous) question, I sort of felt that Perl 6 had quietly faded away several years ago. I'd see references to it now and then but nothing to suggest it would ever fully materialize. The 6-ish stuff released (Moose, etc) could possibly spur greater interest or actually steal the thunder. Would a full Perl 6 be worth the added effort?
The feeling I have now is that Perl 6 has gathered momentum and will indeed break through. It will certainly have some rough edges and compatibility issues but should be interesting and usable.
I don't know if I'll completely embrace the new paradigm or just stay in my safe world of Perl 5. Of course, I managed to tear myself away from Perl 4 when I thought that it was the pinnacle of evolution (compared to C, sh and awk).
