Has anyone ever tried Ruby?  I have a hankerin' to learn it cause I've heard nothing but good things about it.  Does anyone have any clues?  I'm reading a sweet guide on it right now--it's called "Why's (poignant) Guide to Ruby" and it's awesome!

Maybe it's just because it panders to my strange, strange, attention deficit disorder ridden mind.  Though--it might also be because the man that wrote it can really write--and there are cartoons every so often, I'm not sure yet.  At any rate--anyone know it?

Haven't tried it, but I'd say go for it (I know of someone who uses it and they love it, and they're quite good with code).

I've considered learning it in the past, but don't have the inclination at the time ... working on a rather large project which obviously is in C...
