Hi,

I have been reading lots of headings about the New Rubinius Project and
therefore decided to know more from the website.

Unfortunately from the main Rubinius website and reading few blogs here
and there i could not understand the exact importance of Rubinius. The
only thing i could gather was its a VM written in Ruby, using the idea
of Small Talk 80. I also failed to understand, whether this a hype or an
actual advantage flowing to us.

I was surprised to know 6 full time programmers are hired by Engine yard
to work full time on this project.

Since i am new to this ruby world... my knowledge is limited.

Can some one come clear about what exactly is Rubinius and how this
project is going to be very helpful to us....? Why is MERB attached/used
as reference to this Rubinius Project....?

Thanks for the help in advance.
