Many people seem to be proposing questions which ask people's opinions of things which are factual and can be answered readily by reading the documentation. For example, your question can be partly answered by looking at the rakudo download page. There were about 3000 downloads of the July release (I was one) and since then there have been less than 1000 (not me) per month. Personally, I have decided to finally make a commitment to writing a perl6 app. This is not entirely due to the state of rakudo. The biggest influence on my decision was the posting of the example of a class which implements a rolled dice. I've been interested in parrot and perl6 ever since they were announced but I don't have a lot of time or expertise to contribute. So I subscribed to this mailing list when I was finally convinced that perl6 was going to really happen. -- --gh
