in reply to Perl 6: Will we use it?

Are you kidding? Have you been reading the Apocalypse articles? Not only will I use it when it comes out, I'll be agonizing about it for months ahead of time, hoping it will come out soon, trying to put off starting any new projects in Perl5 that will end up having to be converted. I'll almost certainly be using it before it's out of beta, because by then I won't be able to stand it any longer. Just like with Emacs 21 -- do you remember how painful it was waiting month after month for that? Perl6 will be the same.
