in thread The future of Perl?

What? Perl6 released next year? When was this first announced? 2006?

Isn't this the reason of Perl decline? People read an announcement like this, hold their breath ... and turn blue and eventually start to smell.

The knight that says nay.

    So this is from the link

    But mostly how a bunch of stubbornly fun-loving people outlasted the naysayers to accomplish the extraordinary task of implementing a language that was so ambitious, even its designers said it was impossible.

    How can anybody even afford to miss a deadline after writing something like this? After all they have to prove a point to 'the naysayers'. So I guess we should all take this well that this time its for real!

    Prepare to be delightfully surprised.

    Actually at this point, any thing with Perl 6 would hardly surprise me(us?)

    Speakers: Larry Wall

    All the more reason to take this seriously
