    Why is Ruby lame? Have you ever used it? I've actually seen quite a few articles in Linux mags about how they liked Ruby. Here's a quote from one of Linux Magazine's articles:

    There are plenty of technical things to like about the language. Ruby is concise, with a simple syntax and grammar. It's both high-level and close to the machine, so you can get a lot done with a remarkably short program. It's totally object-oriented; everything is an object (or can be made into an object), and it was designed that way from the start. Like Smalltalk, Ruby's variables are not typed, but the language is strongly typed. It's dynamic; you can extend all classes, including the built-in ones, at runtime, and its eval() method lets you incrementally compile code into a running program. Its garbage collection makes coding less of a crapshoot, and the simple yet flexible exception scheme makes it easy to structure your error handling. And when you have to interface to other libraries, it is simple to write Ruby interfaces in C.
    I've never used Ruby but from the sound of it, it seems like a pretty good language. Just because you haven't used something or don't like it for some reason doesn't mean it's lame.

    Personally, I don't like the feel of it. Just feels a little too VBish for me.

    I was actually going to pick up a book on Ruby. Just wanted to try it out. Since I know smalltalk, didnt think it would ever come in handy, but since it does, what not give it a shot.

    Dont knock it until you've tried it.

    No I DIDN'T steal my name from Misro$ofts OS, it's pure coincidence.

    The lines around my name (-) are only there because i needed a name over the 3 character minimum letter limit
