Perl 6 has not missed the boat

| No Comments

A thread on Ubuntu Forums included the absurd assertion that Perl 6 has missed the boat.

This cannot be true, simply because there is no boat.

Perl 6 is not, and never has been, about capturing market share, or fitting a given niche, or becoming the pre-eminent tool of choice for a given problem area.

Larry says "Perl 6 isn't about missing boats, but about inventing airplanes."

I'm finally working on my "handy responses for Perl 6 sniping" cheat sheet. I'll post it soon!
