in thread Perl 6 and performance

Bud Lite was terrible beer ten years ago; reasonable people assume that it is still terrible. In any case, useful programming languages usually come from single designers/implementors with clear visions: Ritchie and C, Stroustrup and C++, Wall and Perl, van Rossum and Python, Matzumoto and Ruby. The others come from massive corporate money: Microsoft and C#, Sun and Java.

    I won't defend the machine that goes *ping*, but I do believe there's actually more hype and less usefulness in Ruby than in C#. Now the first version of C# was way too conservative (so as not to surprise and frighten the old-school C/C++ programmers), but the current version with generics, lambdas and type inference is pretty nice.

    Enoch was right!
    Enjoy the last years of Rome.
