    Damian gave a talk at YAPC::NA about "Perl 6 is still Perl." I read his TPJ article on the same subject before hearing the talk. After reading the article, I sorta felt Perl 6 might not be so bad. Then I heard the talk, and I was scared again. Me no like.
    • Yeah, but this is your standard reaction to everything, Pudge. OS X? Scary! Perl 6? Scary! You're just not a major rewrite kinda guy, and that's okay. You'll wait until Perl 6.1, before getting your toes wet.

      • Maybe. In fairness, though, I am not against major rewrites. I was for the idea of Mac OS X, just not how it initially turned out. I wanted Mac OS on top of Uniux, and I got NeXT on top of Unix. Now it is becoming more and more like old Mac OS, so I am happier. I am not for much of what is in Perl 6 from the beginning, so it's less likely I'll bother in the future.
