in reply to My cow-orkers mostly...

My colleagues dislike Perl largely because it isn't C# or VB.NET. The lack of a "point-and-click" design tool -- even though our use for Perl has to do with text-mode automation tools -- leaves them disgusted. That, and they can't wrap their head around the idea that I don't need the full (pricey) ActiveState Komodo and PDK to develop and even compile Perl code.

To them, the $200 price tag of the ActiveState kit is seen as "Perl costs more than C# -- C# is only $100". One or two are finally understanding that I use the free version of Perl with SciTE to develop all of our automation tools -- and that the $200 license we've purchased from ActiveState was a waste, since I'm the only Perl devel and I don't use it.
