in reply to perl 6

This question/issue goes well beyond just a programming language. It is in all things that we use. Car, TV, soda, etc. People chose preference and reference to things as a way of defining their relationship with it. If I state that Java sucks and isn't a real programming language, that would most likely indicate my limited understanding of the language and how to use it. If I say I love Java then most likely it is something that I understand and can use to my advantage. In the ideal computing world we would all be neutral on languages, but that would deny us human nature.

So the real question is: "Do you think Perl 6 will change your opinion of the language?

As monks we don't dwell on these issues, but rather use the language to get our task at hand completed.
