Shallow and Pedantic

As for Python

Myself, I’m a Ruby hacker. I send everyone within earshot to TryRuby, code my sites using Rails, am surprised that I’m using a php-based blog… you get the picture. Ruby is sometimes called the Japanese Python, and comparisons are inevitable. I know very little about Python, but I do know that… It has a larger community More GUI applications are written in it More bindings are available for it Its interpreter is much faster Not a far inferior language Ruby certainly does have its advantages over it - trivial class expansion, extremely concise syntax, seemingly better-suited for heavy usage of closures, and Matz.
