I like Ruby, but I don’t like its performance, so I’m really anticipating Ruby 2.0. Meanwhile, I’ve been dabbling in Python. Learning a new language and comparing and contrasting them, really helps with determining each language’s strengths and weaknesses. For example, you can easily update all your Ruby gems. Unfortunately, python doesn’t have a direct way of doing this using easy_install. Very odd. I tried using the shell script method, but for whatever reason it just didn’t work as advertised. So I wrote a bash alias to take care of it.
