I Love Ruby Because ..
It's easy to spell.
It is a hammer which can shape-shift into a nail or a bulldozer.
With ruby your aren't a programmer, but the true modern Artist!
it isn't as gafferesk as perl
sexy syntax, easy to read and understand
I don't want to fight the language & frameworks but focus on building solutions. Ruby give me the freedom to do just that.
it really make you feel that programming is enjoyable..!!!
Powerful control over classes, objects and so on. Metaprogramming.
it's so intuitive to write code in Ruby.
Just a few weeks after I started developing my first Ruby application I feel more at home with it than with other languages I've programmed in for many years.
...of the the way it beautifully integrates blocks (lambdas) directly into functions.
