"Active State is very easy to setup (just an .msi file - no compiler needed)."

Strawberry Perl is the same, just one .msi to download.

    Ok, fair enough. But there is more past the initial installation. With Active State, you don't need a compiler for module installation because all the work of of the XS compilation, etc has already been done via the .ppd files. Compiling some of the more complex modules is non-trivial. The "one click" and "its done" feature is very compelling. For some reason that I've never been able to understand, generating the HTML documentation takes a long time.
