It's been several months since we've had one of these surveys for those 
who have just arrived in RubyLand....

So, if you're relatively new to Ruby (let's say it's been less than three 
months since you tried out Ruby) or if you find that you want to answer, 
here are a few questions for you:

1) How did you find out about Ruby?

2) Prior to finding Ruby, what programming language(s) did you primarily 
use?

3) (this question is for folks coming from PythonLand or PerlLand)
What Python or Perl modules do you miss most and wish that Ruby had?

4) (follow-up to #3) Would the lack of these modules preclude you from 
using Ruby?

5) Do you think you'll be using Ruby at work in the next:
  3 months?   6 months?  (or do you already use it at work?)

6) (follow-up to #4) If you don't forsee being able to use Ruby at work 
within the next 6 months, what is the main reason keeping you from using 
it there?
