in reply to My own "why I like Ruby" list
in thread Other programming language I most often use

It is truly an object oriented language... no hybrid datatypes!
When I gave it a glance a while back, it didn't look like you could subclass or extend the built-in classes. Did I read that wrong?

Or am I just confusing it with that so-called OO language being hyped by Sun? {grin}
