in reply to Score: Perl 1, Ruby 0

Once upon a time, Perl wasn't all that great with threads either. Given any language and a single comparison, we could come to the same conclusion. Every language would be a pipe dream.

However, plenty of people are using Ruby for real work. It exists and you can program with it right now. Indeed, you have. It's not a pipe dream.

If we advocate Perl by putting down other languages, we just look like ignorant jerks. Let's promote Perl by it's merits, not by our failed attempts to use a language which is new to us.
