    Any people here who use Ruby?

    I am thinking of playing with Ruby (with Rails and Ajax).

    Any opinions on Ruby?

    It seems to have some interesting features, though i don't know much about it.

    I like how you can pass in function parameters by name as in SQL, i always though that was something every language should support. I like how everything is an object as well.

    I'm not a fan of the syntax nor the verbiage (why begin/rescue instead of try/catch?).
    It's not a language that i see myself picking over another unless it becomes so popular i have to start using it.
