The perl.com success stories are sort of old now. I'm looking for any articles/whitepapers/etc... out there which pertain to "We used to use X, switched to Perl and now life is good" or "We used Perl, switched to X and now life is bad". Not just stories on how Perl is great for whatever was done, but why Perl ended up being the best choice.
Anyone have any pointers to newsgroup articles, magazine articles, etc...? Bonus points if it is from a company, not just an individual. Extra Bonus points for anything written by a manager-type.
