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.

The Perl6 effort is already three years old. They are getting code to alpha stages. The RFC period has come and gone a LONG time ago.
