This was the first question in the Slashdot interview of Guido van
Rossum

 Ruby 
 by Luke  
 Thoughts on Ruby? 

 Guido:

 I just looked it up -- I've never used it. Like Parrot, it looks like
 a mixture of Python and Perl to me. That was fun as an April Fool's
 joke, but doesn't tickle my language sensibilities the right way.

 That said, I'm sure it's cool. I hear it's very popular in Japan. I'm
 not worried.


Interesting attitude.
