I agree that most users don't want to use an alpha, beta, or even 1.0 product. These users should stay well clear of Perl 6 until it's much more mature.
I considered your words about Perl 6 users damaging to Perl so I appreciate your acknowledgement that you weren't speaking from a position of first hand knowledge and would like to assure you you were wrong.
Lastly, I'm curious to know what other context you have that led you to your conclusion about the timeframe for productizing Perl 6. In contrast to you I've been closely following Perl 6 since 2000. I was in channel when Larry said "I think this is one of the things we need to do to productize Perl 6 over the next year or two". I'm confident he meant the plain interpretation of what he said.
