  • Look then at python.org and ruby-lang.org.
    And thus look at perl.org [perl.org] as well.

    While I see how one could get a biased view from a dot-com site, checking out the dot-org site clearly shows a lot more neutrality.

      Of course, the distinctions between .com and .org are not well-known among most programmers today, and for that matter, may be just a historical footnote, in practical terms.

    • But, perl.com plainly states on it that it is the "Source for Perl". Why would anyone go anywhere else but the "source"? I would wager 95% of people looking for something look at .com before .org or .net (let alone .tv, .info, etc...) So, if I see this place is the "source for Perl", why would I go looking at the .org? After finding this "source for Perl" I could see how people could assume Perl is an ORA product of some sort.
  • IMHO there is a tight bond between ORA and Larry Wall, afaik they pay him and he gets to work on Perl. So the lines kind of overlap a bit.

    Perhaps this kind of association between Perl and a corporation have made it more attractive to conservative companies (unlike Python and others)...

    But the facts have to be made more visible at the site: Perl is Artistic and GPLed. It does not belong to O'reilly.
