I have come across other Perl distros for Windows, with varying
degrees of support and stability. I even came across a distribution
packaged with Apache the only version of mod_perl that I've ever seen
actually work in Windows. It was stable, but the configuration was
finicky. But the ActivePerl distro is just about as good as you can
get in Windows, without formatting and installing a real OS.
