    I'm a FreeBSD person from the days of old and it works there, but I've never tested on OpenBSD personally (but I know of people who have).

    Do you have any specific questions about Perl6? I've tested it on a few platforms and it works the same across all of the ones I've toyed with (using Rakudo as Your Mother already stated). Are there issues you've found with that variant of BSD? There are P6 experts here who can guide you if so.

    Larry announces Perl 6 is a decent summary of the announcement of the 'official' release which apparently will be around 'Christmas' this year. He said this while (supposedly) merlyn was in the audience, so it must be true ;)

    Development releases have been available for years and years. Iím using current rakudo/moar on OS X which is almost BSD underneath so you should have no trouble building/installing it. Itís not a 1.0 release yet but itís fun.
