Ruby falls short

An intesting post which mirrors my feelings about Ruby exactly: the syntax is too complex, and a lot of stuff that should be library is hard-wired into the language. And Ruby blocks are inconsistent and limited. I still think Ruby is decent, but if it had better performance by an order of magnitude, and cleaner syntax and semantics, it would be killer.

The removed post was viagra spam, FWIW. I do not and never will remove legitimate comments simply because I disagree with them, like some webloggers do.
