in reply to Why aren't you using Perl 6 yet?

Since there are far too many posts here to reply to individually, I am going to post a summary reply. It's heartening to see the number of thoughtful replies. Based on previous Perl 6 posts here at the Monastery, I expected very little response. Even though these responses are explaining why people aren't using Perl 6, at least it shows some level of interest.

The content of the replies is encouraging, too. Most of them are positive, "wait and see" kind of thoughts. This is a perfectly understandable direction to take. I am glad to see there's not a whole lot of general anti-Perl-6 sentiment out there. At least, not in this thread, anyway. :-)

I wonder what the replies would have been like if, instead of asking about "using" Perl 6, I had asked about "looking at" or "investigating". That probably would have been closer to what I intended to ask. I suppose it was a poor word choice on my part, but the responses are interesting and enlightening nonetheless.

Many thanks to all who replied! Oh, and by the way, don't let this message stop you from replying if you haven't yet. I will keep reading any further posts with interest.
