Hello,

I just started learning Ruby.. and the book didn't
lie about it.. Ruby seems to be really funny to work with.
But I have a few questions about Ruby.



How stable is Ruby ?

In the book they said that Ruby can have some performance
problems. How much is it ?

Does a Ruby compiler exists ?

Are there specific Ruby IDE's ? Or other tools which can 
speed up development ?

Will Ruby be extended with it's own GUI-library ?

Has Ruby already been used to develop business applications ?

Thanks in advance,

Best regards,

Axel Vanhooren.
