Your wrong, Perl6 is going to completely blow Perl5 out of the water, and it will happen a lot sooner than you think.

    In other news Somalia will be replacing US as the world's biggest economic power. And its going to happen sooner than you think.

      It's amazing to me, you actually believe that Larry, and all the other people working on Perl 6 are idiots living a dream, and that __YOU__ are right whilst they are wrong.

      The syntactic sugar added to Perl5 decimates it's performance, whilst in Perl6 such things are basically built in from the ground up. When it's ready Perl6 will be able to do everything Perl5 can do, and will do it in a fraction of the time.

      If you knew the first thing about why Larry decided to abandon Perl5 all those years ago, you would realise why it is that your talking crap.

      I bet your the same idiot that decided you knew my system was crap before having looked at it. What's wrong? Can't stand the idea of change? Does change frighten you? Make you feel inadequet or worried that your going to have to learn about new things? Well don't worry you can just use Perl5 for as long as you need it, just don't upgrade your distro and you'll be fine... the rest of us however will be lapping up the Perl6 goodness and paying far less for our servers to do far more work.

      Ps, I bet you were still using windows 3.11 in the year 2001... luddite.

        No one has decades to wait for a programming language. Which no one has clue what it can do, Nothing related to Perl 6 at this time is even remotely close to ready. We are talking of smoke stuff. Building palaces in thin air, and then saying "ooh, look at this when this actually completes. It will make Buckingham palace look like a hut".

        If you can't provide a compelling replacement in time, some one else will. And no matter how beautiful your claim your tool to be, its still non existent. Or at least not usable. Perl 5 is usable and does the job *now*. And there are millions using Perl 5, are you saying they are fools for not chasing a day dream? Nopes, they just realize a little performance sacrifice is a lot better than waiting for something that isn't seeming to be ready even after more than a decade.

        Projects that generally take this long. Never reach their goal. They die a slow death.
