in thread Perl 6 ... dead?

I have to agree with hartwig and Wassercrats.

The same exact situation (or maybe worst) can be seen here in Brazil.

I love Perl and I have high expectations about Perl 6 and Parrot, but things are starting to look scary on the jobs horizon...

About dragonchild's post:

Most Fortune 1000 companies don't know that they use Perl as much as they really do. In fact, I'll be that if you ask, many Fortune 1000 companies would think that they don't use Perl at all, when, in fact, they would be dead in the water without it!

I think one of Perl's major problems is exactly this. Someone should tell these company's this fact, so Perl can be more known, appreciated and respected.
