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

I honestly don't like many of the changes that have been made in Perl 6. Perl 5 certainly could use improvement, but many of the changes to the syntax for Perl 6 just seem ridiculously gratuitous. I know it's silly, but Perl 6 just doesn't look and feel like Perl 5. I've been programming in Perl professionally for 10+ years. Perl 6 is so different from Perl 5 that I strongly feel that it should be given a new name entirely. So I'm sticking with Perl 5 until it's either no longer viable or until there's a compelling reason to use Perl 6.
