other recent threads have touched upon this subject;
my 2 ”re is while that the article was flawed, ruby it-
self appears to be (yet another) good language.  like
rebol, lua, dylan, squeak, scheme, etc, etc.

most real differences between ruby and python appears
to be differences between the current implementations,
though.  CPython 1.5.2 isn't the only implementation
out there, you know...
