in reply to Ruby vs Perl vs LISP; the killer feature lacking in Ruby

You don't mention it explicitly, but my impression is that you've been using Lisp and Perl for a lot longer than you've been using Ruby. If that is indeed the case, then it should not be especially surprising that when using Lisp and Perl you don't need to devote as much time to thinking about the model, syntax, APIs and idioms of the programming language than you do with Ruby, a language you have less experience with.

    I find that using LISP interrupts the flow of my thought processes much more than Perl or Ruby. Probably because I've done similar amounts of stuff in Ruby and Perl, and don't really know any LISP. Then again, it could be the all caps vs. normally capitalized names...
