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.
