So, which is it?
Erlang, Ocaml, Mozart/Oz, Clean, Rudy, D, Occam, Concurrent Haskell, Concurrent C... I have (and try to use after some fashion) all but the last three.
And funnily enough, the existence of all those is (another) pretty good argument for why it is important to speak up now for good support of threading in Perl6 and its underpinnings.
I don't see any flame war (with the exception of one named monk and one anonymonk--who could well be the same person.)
I see an important debate to counter the "thread is spelt F-O-R-K" mentality that is so pervasive in the Perl, Parrot & Unix communities that are playing such a big part in shaping the future of my preferred language. Which, incidentally, happens to also be the subject and reason for existance of this place.
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.

In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
