I just compiled Perl 6, currently known as Rakudo. It actually works.

    It works, but it is dreadfully, painfully slow, at least when I tried Rakudo a couple weeks ago, and this is on a 3 GHz Core 2 Duo. Seriously, why couldn’t the Perl guys have been as sensible as the Python people and not tried to both completely redesign the language and create a new runtime at the same time?

    I heard at one point they planned to get Perl 6 also run on the Perl 5 runtime, which I’m sure would have been much, much faster, but I haven’t heard anything about that since.
