'Under Perl systems I've had to manually install modules for hours just to get "Hello, World!" on the bloody screen. It shouldn't be that way.'
It isn't that way, and it's potentially misleading to others who don't know better to claim otherwise. first steps even has a video tutorial for those who are completley new to this.
If by 'I've had to manually install modules for hours just to get "Hello, World!" on the bloody screen' you actually mean it took you more than an hour to get a "hello world!" perl generated web page then I'd have to question why it took so long.
