I'm rather fond of Perl.
Why you'd consider it legacy, I don't know. Probably because of the trendy languages like Ruby and Python. It's true Perl code can end up looking like a dog's dinner, but it doesn't have to. Whilst looking for something to do with Catalyst at the weekend I stumbled across the excellent Catalyzed.org. The about page puts it nicely, I think.
