in thread Getting Fed Up with ActiveState
Since AS can't support core module upgrades, users cannot use modules which require those
But AS perl can (and does) support core module upgrades. Any user with a compiler (either a free/commercial M$ compiler, or the freely available MinGW compiler) can upgrade core modules on ActivePerl. If that's not happening, then I think you should blame the user ... not ActiveState.
I think it's up to the user to overcome the PPM shortcomings. It's not a difficult task.
