Ruby does take some getting used to. "Rails" is pretty slick, though the differences between v1.x and v2.x are enough to drive you mad. The "objectiness" of the language has a certain charm. A different feel
to the language, if that makes any sense.
The lack of sigils and line terminators does bug me, though I can get into the groove after a while.
I'm just glad they Mats didn't follow Guido with the whitespace...
When all is said and done, Ruby does not have a Perl Monks. Until there is an established, non-fanboy "Ruby Monks", it will be a lot easier to get things done with Perl.
