I didn't come to them. They added on to a conversation they were not part of.
I've been here for more than long enough to know the value of the work both have done for PM and Perl. If I could afford it, I'd fund them for the foreseeable future just on the basis of what has been done thus far.
By the way, I've not said that Perl supports Windows poorly. I've haven't found that much of a problem at least with the work that I've done. Some how or another I've managed to find the packages I need, install and use them with great success. Sometimes it causes unnecessary hair loss; but programming does that anyway.
