    For Perl 6 to be Ruby, Perl 5.x would have to be
    the last Perl. Is this what Larry is now planning?
    (it does explain months of delays and confusion)

    To its credit, Ruby proves programmers can have
    it all: power, flexibility, *and* ease-of-learning,
    in a clean, portable, syntax-friendly language.

    Now that I code in Ruby for some real-world jobs,
    I can completely understand Larry's admiration.

    By the way - merry Xmas, everybody!
