http://askubuntu.com – I am fed up with Windows 7 and want to use Ubuntu. Kindly let me know if Perl Version 5.12.4 is included in the desktop version of Ubuntu 11.10 or does it have to be seperately downloaded? I have been to packages.ubuntu.com and found that Perl Version 5.12.4 is available on Ubuntu, but is that the server version or desktop version? Or does it mean that the package is available, but I have to download it seperately? Kindly let me know. I will be using Ubuntu mainly as my personal desktop system as well as doing some scripting on Perl and Python. (HowTos)
