I have a visual basic 6 program I made which stores databases and
allows the user to input data and get calculations from day to day. It
uses dao. There a many different windows that come up to input various
preferences and data calculations.

Can I build such a program with Ruby or is Ruby more for dos based
systems or for only web development?

I guess I just really don't understand what all Ruby is for.

Thanks in advance to any response.
