The man himself will set me straight if it is of interest to him
Based on this classic TimToady-esque If someone decides I'm ugly and beats my face to a pulp, and later I get a face transplant, am I still me? response, I'll bet 50p (assuming you live in the country implied by your name and therefore enjoy a bet) on Larry holding the view that Perl 6 is a rewrite of Perl 5. :)

    No. Despite my location, I'm not a betting man. But if I was, I'd confine my flutters to things with better odds of predictability that an American's use of English--pachinko, spread bets or snow on christmas day :)

    More seriously. To my mind a re-write implies writing, something that was already written, again.

    Perl 6 had (has?) never been written before, so it cannot be a rewrite.

    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.

[Corion]: 1nickt: No, I'm using it with Windows 10, but with the 4k display, yes. It's a very nice build IMO, and relatively sturdy. Also, it got 8 or 9 on the ifixit repair scale, which I consider good
[Corion]: ... especially as I expect to have to replace the battery set in two or three years' time
[1nickt]: Nice. So happy that Dells are still user-repairable. Unusual these days.
[1nickt]: I will certainly not be buying any more Macs.
[Corion]: 1nickt: Yeah, or at least, I hopoe so ;)
