I'm finally entering into the world of prototype robotics. The research has been fun, even fascinating at times, but I'm at a point where getting feedback from those whose opinions I respect seems appropriate.

I'm looking for general feedback from any Monks who have worked in that space on the values or detriments of using Perl on Raspberry Pi in this capacity.

For a variety of reasons, I'm leaning toward using as close as possible to stock builds. A good argument for a different Linux or a different Perl is welcome, of course.

Arguments for the Windows OS on Raspberry are also welcome, I suppose, but the argument will likely be challenged to pique my interest for long.
