General Development The purpose of this essay is to explain why I believe Perl 6, the way it currently seems to progress, is the wrong thing at the wrong time, and why I predict (with all the expected caveats of predicting something) that it won't be successful. I will also suggest a better alternative for the future of Perl which makes more sense at this point.

mostly agree

I mostly agree with the author but one thing he misses is that
Perl 6 is actually a very good language if you start fresh, its more homogeen and readable and maintainable than previous Perls and should be easier and faster to learn.

I never did like Perl but it good to see that they are trying to setup a new and solid base.
