in reply to Perl 6: Will we use it?

I like to whine to my friends about how scary and huge Perl 6 is shaping up to be, and how I want nothing to do with it. I started messing a lot with Ruby because I felt lost and bewildered by Perl 6.

Truth is, I'm very excited. The Apocalypses scare me a little bit, until it occurs to me how few of Perl's advanced features I use. I skim my way through most of the Camel book, but it's really the function section I put to use. It's likely to be the same thing with Perl 6. The only new features that will really affect my work happen to be the ones that make things easier: fixed arg passing, along with improved type and object systems.

So yeah, I'll use it. I'll keep using Ruby, though. The older I get, the easier it is for me to love more than one programming language :-)
