> I'll close with the hopeful sentence at the end of my comment from 4 years ago: https://lwn.net/Articles/330101/ Though, I've tried Perl6 since then, and I'm less excited about it now.
When did you last try it and is there some reason other than it taking so long that is why you are less excited?
It's important to accept the real pace of development rather than what might be hoped. As I said, also 4 years ago, "as hard to stomach as it may be, the story remains, even though they've taken a decade to get this far, they may well take ... five [years] to get to Perl 6.0.0 and a generally robust status". I continue to follow Perl 6 and I think that estimate was a good one.
