OK I'll bite, - I don't know that much about Ruby other than not
many people use it and it's dynamically typed. I stopped there.

The windows installer for Ruby has only been around for a few years
though, AFAIK :P

I think I did say there was no "IDE". I guess that counts in a sort
of 1997 way.

OK, How about a cross-platform desktop UI (like Swing)? 10+ years
later folks are still searching [ http://www.rubygarden.org/ruby?
DoYourRubyGUIResearch ] for the right solution. It's no different
than Python. Only Java got that one half right. ( No joke I am
working on some Swing stuff right now ).
OK, OK, OK - I'll try it. I'm not going to like it. I'm only doing
it because I have the spare time right now and everybody says it's
cool. I still don't like dynamically typed languages. ;)
