My thoughts on this from practical experience at Perl conferences and Open Source conferences in general: many (former) Perl 5 programmers are looking forward to finding a use-case to use Perl 6 for a project in their environment. And some have done already, and put the result in production, which may be specifically easy with micro-services using Cro (https://cro.services).

Of course, there are (former) Perl 5 programmers who still think Perl 6 is the sole reason for Perl's demise. These are fortunately very few, but alas also very vocal.
