in thread Spoiled by Perl

The Java/Microsoft fight of twenty years ago has left us today with what looks to me like an unfortunate legacy: extra work for language implementors ... or is it an extra challenge with the potential to improve the way languages are implemented?

AFAIK, Perl 5 has never seriously run on JVM or CLR. Though Raku has a JVM implementation, the CLR implementation (Niecza) seems to be abandoned. While Python 2 runs on both (Jython, IronPython), the Python 3 port to both these VMs appears to be unfinished - 13 years after the C version of Python 3 was released in 2008!

Note that I don't have any first hand experience here ... opinions/corrections welcome. :)
