  • Perl6 almost certainly will dominate the professional software environment within a few years of the first practical implementation. The business case for using perl6 as the primary development language in a business or software house are as follows:
    1. Perl6 is inherently parallel. Junctions (and other innovative language contructs) offer programmers an intellectually easy method for writing programs with parallelism. Multiple cores already are required to increase computer performance, so languages that of
    • If [Perl 6] software is too slow, it will be impractical.

      That's too simplistic. Plenty of projects do just fine with languages and runtimes and environments considered "too slow" for other projects.

      A language without an IDE and visual debuggers cannot be considered modern or effective.

      That's too simplistic too, depending on your definition of "modern" and "effective". I never use the Perl 5 debugger and I wouldn't likely use it if I had an IDE with a visual debugger. I believe I can write very effective, modern Perl despite my stubbornness -- and I don't see how an IDE or a visual Perl 5 debugger would add much productivity.
