A Windows binary for MobiPerlhave been very good for getting people to use it but the disdvantage is that I will get more problem trying to change to Perl 5.10.
Well, the ActiveState dev kit shouldn't have any more problem compiling 5.10 perl to exes than 5.8, but the major problem with the ActiveState 5.10 distribution is that its support for CPAN is basically broken (they've got some kind of critical bug with their YAML parser that breaks it), so you're limited to PPM-installs.
I've been meaning to test Strawberry Perl to see if that's a better general solution.
