in thread Ovid's take on the renaming of "Perl6"

Our sub thread started here Re: Ovid's take on the renaming of "Perl6" and was about potential future optimisations.
You are concentrating in repeating what went wrong in the past and how promises were broken.

Yes. Exactly.

But you've also been a poster boy of this management group for a decade.

Sure. That's why I stopped. After 10 years of evidence that promises would be broken, I stopped believing the people who made those promises over and over again.

Why should I believe them now, after another 8 years of broken promises?

    It's not about believing but having a scientifically sound (hence productive) discussion.

    Jonathan shows stuff in this video, you can watch it and share your opinion.

    Where we agree: Perl5 should certainly not count on Perl6 to save the day.

    Well you were one of the promise makers and I believed them.

      Not an order of magnitude performance improvement.

      you were one of the promise makers and I believed them.

      When the facts change, I try to change my mind.

        And who tells me that you'll not need to change your mind again in 2020?

        YOU convinced me back then with the argument that Perl 5's inner workings have become unmaintainable and Perl 6 will be much easier to work with.

        Cheers Rolf
