I think part of his argument was that the change in Perl6 is too drastic. I'm sure many like myself got into Perl and like it because it is what it is. I'll be the first to admit that Perl5 has problems. Personally I think OO programming in Perl is a disaster. Using objects is great, but coding them seems much more messy than C++ IMHO.

So yeah I'd like to see that change, but do I want the entire language to be overhauled? Not really, and I see a LOT of new things in Perl6 that I just don't like. I'm sure many of us are concerned that there may be a crossroads after Perl6 is released, where Perl5 is on the decline and Perl6 is the future. If it comes to that point for me, I will be programming in Ruby from that point forward.
