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.

      Actually "Star" is the name of a distribution (just like "activestate" or "strawberry"). The version is a month name, and will stay that way.

        In that case will the star releases bundle libraries, external modules and few dev tools?
