It seems to me that the key point is thus:
Perl 5 has:
- Strawberry Perl
Perl 6 has:
- Rakudo Star
On one side, when dealing with 5 everything has "Perl" reassuringly stamped on it somewhere. On the other, dealing with 6 has a distinct lack of common features in the names.
You probably have not heard of "IndigoPerl" before, but you know enough about what it is, instantly, from the name. If you hadn't seen "Rakudo" before, you'd have no clue until you check with google.
