  • If they saw a demo of some of Perl 6's features (fibonacci in a single line, for example) they might get excited about the idea of helping with Perl 6 on .NET (see "backend diversity" at []).
    • It's been my experience that Microsoft doesn't necessarily work that way, except in a limited fashion.

      What they are both interested and capable the most in is in the area of "Interop" as they call it. Contained, concrete steps they can take to remove roadblock from the path of otherwise active technologies, and to make them work better on Windows.

      Some of these are financial, like the CPAN Testing Lab and their (rumored) free code signing certs. Some are toolchain related like CoApp.

      The issues where they are the only ones that can fix a problem are the ones they are the most interested in. I can bring it up, but I suspect you won't see much interest.
