But seriously, who gives a shit?

Should I Learn Python or Ruby next? (by Jeremy Zawodny)

The ever-popular Zawodny thinks about trying a new language on for size. It’s amazing to me how when one asks a simple “Should I do a or b?,” so many people will answer “You should do c.” The general feeling of the commnters seems to be that both are good languages. Python tends to prefer the “one right way to do any particular thing” mantra, which may make it more well-suited for getting things done and simpler to learn, whereas Ruby tends to allow for more creativity and expression, which may ultimately make it more fun, if with a steeper learning curve. Interesting discussion about the two languages that, at least so far, hasn’t devolved into a flame war.
