  • This is really nice news for obvious reasons.

    Now it is probably no sekrit that I don't follow p5p, haven't ever read the perl C source to find the cause of my bug, and have referred folks to perldoc perlport without doing so much as skim reading it myself.

    So with those facts of ignorance entered into evidence, what would have really been mind blowing if M$ engineers had decided to start hacking on the perl core to improve the port.

    • That would indeed be cool – in fact it would be cool if any of the big players in IT earmarked any amount of money to aid Perl. But without wanting to detract from your point… it wouldn’t replace this VM farm – because this is about improving Windows support not in perl, but in CPAN modules.
