Hello there,

I think my opinion would be just about the same as many others is:
1) The preface of specification book states that perl 6 is a NEW language
and it shares ideas with perl 5 and both equally benefit from each other- so
that gives a good question, why should I learn it if both cover the same
area of problems.(I did read the book many times though and I'm learning it)

2) Second issue is probably the lack of tools, such as ide(I use vim). It's
only recently I found out that there is such tool as Padre. I.e I use Arch
as a distro and padre isn't in a main repository(neither is rakudo, which
leads me to build it every time it comes out and make a package).

Best regards,
