I have no experience with rakudo. Do you have to launch parrot yourself, or can rakudo do that for you?

    Rakudo embeds libparrot, so after you've installed a Rakudo Star release you don't even have to know that you have Parrot installed.

      Thatís the funny thing... once I've installed it all, I go back to writing Perl, and running it using perl(6). I don't have to even think of Rakudo (and I am not sure what the relationship is between "Rakudo" and "Rakudo Star"... the latter seems to be a product on a web site that is called just rakudo.org) or Parrot.

      So, post-installation, life is simple again. That is a clear identity, and I hope that can be maintained and publicized and reinforced. Simplicity *always* wins out over complexity.

        I believe "Star" is a version, and that they'll be using numbers eventually.
