i started with the 'gsar' version of perl. and used activestate when
they were still 'hip communications'.

if you were on a machine with no perl OR compiler, the activestate
distrobution made sense.

one thing activestate will probably do for the ruby world is attract
more attention from ruby modue developers.

if they released a 'batteries included' version, all the include
modules would   work with it.
