Thought: Ruby’s not ready?

Posted in Web

While I don’t agree with the central premise, I think this exploration of Ruby’s flaws is mosly fair and accurate. Individual developers may decide whether it’s worth it to use Ruby in spite of these problems. But the claims made in this section are plainly ridiculous. As ridiculous as asserting, with a straight face, that OpenOffice would be as good as its Microsoft colleague if it simply adopted an animated paper clip.
