[Purdue-pm] Perl 6, Padre, etc.

I have installed Padre, but that was several time-units ago and I wasn't 
impressed. Under Linux, I use Komodo-Edit a lot and vi a lot more*. 
Under Windows, the best I've used is UltraEdit but I don't code on 
Windows enough to justify buying a license. The one I use most these 
days is Notepad++.

My experience with the Visual Studio 6.0 IDE has generally put me off 
IDEs, but I last dealt with that environment a little over five years 
ago. (I've touched the .NET IDE but not since then and not for real work.)

My understanding that the call for a Perl IDE is largely an "Eat Your 
Dogfood" issue, meaning that, if we support Perl, we should use tools 
written in Perl in every practical purpose. I'm not overly compelled by 
that argument, and I'm unwilling to dive whole-heartedly into an 
untested editor when some clearly powerful and high-quality editors (vi, 
emacs) and acceptable in terms of power and quality editors (GEdit, 
Komodo Edit) are already available.

But I could be wrong.

Has anyone used Padre? Has anyone moved to it as their primary editor? 
Any good reports? Anyone want to talk about it at a meeting?

* Not intending to rekindle any vi/emacs fight here.
