I was actually not aware that Perl 6 was still, actually, being developed as "someone may use this for real".
I, unlike many people, like perl. Please don't get me wrong - I'm not trying to flame here. I personally love perl (5), and I'd say it's the language I'm most comfortable/familiar with. It's what I've used for years when I've needed to write something.
But I fully realize that perl is not preferred by many, if not most, these days. It has been replaced in preference by python for many (most?) sysadmins and devops. Legacy mission critical perl code (second to, perhaps, old PHP) is, in my experience, the most reviled thing out there - not because the language is bad, but because so many truly horrible developers (think: those who work on Enterprise Java now for a living) wrote it - and bad perl is worse than pretty much anything and everything else due to how 'creative' it let people be. Most developers really shouldn't try to be creative; it ends badly for everyone but the developer (should he want a perpetual job maintaining the code).
Perl just isn't used all that much anymore, and you tend to get yelled at for trying to do so. I personally think this is sad: what other scripting language will work (often without having to install much, if anything, to get it working) on everything from Windows, to Linux, to FreeBSD, to AIX, and god knows what else, completely seamlessly (assuming it was only written in perl and did not system() stuff all over the place). BASH and even simple SH scripts will not do this.
Perl was written and adopted in the era when CGI was still common, if not still relatively young - almost 20 years ago. In the interim, other languages have come on (ruby, python) which are more pragmatic if you're dealing with common developers with common tasks, and it's use (as well as the many, many modules available for use have gone out of repair. What's more, perl 6 largely fragmented interest in further maintenance/development of perl.
I'm really not sure what perl 6 has to offer over perl 5, or other languages - it does appear to be quite the paradigm change, from what I recall reading a couple years ago... I wish it well but doubt it'll see much adoption.
