  • I'd say it's a modified version of the first: "You can't compare applications and languages." Developers seem to tend to contribute more to application projects than languages. In fact, one of the things I like about the Perl way is that CPAN tends to smoothen the line separating both.

    • I'd agree that you can't compare. The major difference is that Perl activity is the sum of the people working in Perl and the people working on Perl, whereas with an application, you're just looking at the people working on it - not to mention that the people working in Perl are much more diverse and harder to measure. The total developer activity could well actually be about the same between Gnome/KDE and Perl.
