Dave Thomas tells which is better: Ruby or Xyz?

Go ahead, admit it… you really want to know whether Ruby is better than Java (or Perl, or C#, or… you-name-it). Pragmatic Programmer Dave Thomas has the answer for us: no. Of course he also says the answer to “is Java better than Ruby” is no as well. But, you already knew that didn’t you?

My reason for bringing this to your attention is that Dave is planning to post a series of articles, each one addressing one of the hot-button issues that always come up when people want to compare Ruby with other programming languages.

This is important, because Dave is a clear thinker whose opinions I trust. He has a way of cutting through the FUD and addressing the issues with – dare I say – pragmatic fervor.

The first post addresses the issue of performance. Its definitely worth reading, and I’m looking forward to the future installments.
