This is generally my order of language based on complexity of requirements on POSIX systems:
sh -> awk -> perl -> c
It is nice to see Perl not going through the same mess as Python 2.x -> 3.x. I find that kind of language breakage unacceptable. Like VB6 -> VB.NET. It is basically an abrupt death of a programming language and how replacing it with another of the same name actually manages to trick some "non"-developers is beyond me.
Also Perl 5 has a cooler logo: https://github.com/kraih/perl-raptor
