in reply to Perl 6: Will we use it?

I have thought about this ever since the discussions started that PERL 6 will a big change.. and what I've come to is that when it is out I will start to learn the basic changes, if what i see seems to fit the way i think a little better then i may start getting more in depth and maybe start porting some of my stuff as an exrsise to see whether I like it better or not.

What I think will really get me over there is what happens with CPAN. At first most of my code will stay PERL 5 since that what the modules I use are in, when really cool new modules come up or improved version of the ones I use now start showing up written in 6 and expecting to work with Perl 6 then I will really sart to switch over in ernest.

I got into perl because i was working on problem that was turning into a real pain in shell script and someone pointed me to a very simple PERL solution, I suspect the same will happen with 6 when I have a problem that is easier or cleaner to solve in Perl 6 than in 5 then I will really have the motivation and the willingness to learn the new stuff.
