I am not meaning to promise anything, to say P6 is almost ready for you, that it will live up to its hype. I think you are misinterpreting my words.

Let's look at some of what I'm actually saying. For the last few months, when I've written here about P6, I've typically included a prominent box that says:

This post is about the immature Perl 6, not the rock solid Perl 5

This in turn links to a post I wrote this summer that says:

Perl 6 is not remotely as usable and useful as Perl 5; it has dozens of users, not millions; it is 100-1000x slower than Perl 5 for a lot of stuff; the P6 documentation is immature and incomplete; the spec has not reached 6.0.0; the Rakudo compiler has not fully implemented what's already in the spec; most of the concurrency and parallel implementation has only just begun; P6 can not currently use CPAN modules; Perl 6 has syntax and semantics that are not backwards compatible with Perl 5; Perl 6 culture is -Ofun which some think is incompatible with getting things done; some folk think that Perl 6 code looks like line noise... In summary, there are infinitely many things wrong with P6.

Is that not clear enough for you?
