    They're finally working on making Perl 6 fast. In some examples, it's actually an order of magnitude faster than Perl 5

    To be fair, I think that's only the case for micro-benchmarks that compare Perl 6 built-in features with the equivalent features provided by bloated/unoptimized/neglected Perl 5 modules. For example, Perl 6's built-in Rat type vs Perl 5's Math::BigRat.

    In macro-benchmarks that use many different language features to achieve something resembling a real-world task, Rakudo Perl 6 still tends to be very s…

    I'm quite excited to use this! I wonder if it will be possible to patch rakudobrew to work on Windows.

    No, actually, that is no longer true. There are cases where Rakudo/MoarVM keeps up with Perl 5 at built-ins, or beats it handily. At built-ins. Check out the benchmarks and see for yourself. There is a little “[Code]” button ne…
