in reply to What do you think about ActiveState's Visual Perl .NET??

I can't say much about perl.NET in purticular (never used it or .NET), but I can share a little about activestate in general.

You'd think that since one of the goals of perl6 (via parrot) is making pretty much every language that activestate is involved with run under a common runtime and interoperlate well, that activestate would have some of their people working on perl6 and parrot.

They have zero involvment.

I think that this belies somthing about their community involvement.
