For anything really basic they're about the same.  So this is just about 
more advanced options.

Which is easier depends on what you're doing.  Python comes with more 
built-in libraries, but it's not that difficult to add more libraries in 
either language.  More of the libraries for Ruby seem to be designed to 
facilitate building web pages.

In an orthogonal direction, Python strings are immutable, so if you're 
going to be changing what's in a string Ruby is probably a better 
choice.  But there are good reasons why Python decided to make strings 
immutable...that you may encounter if you start playing around with 
multi-threaded processes.  (N.B.:  Ruby "threads" aren't real 
multiprocessing threads, due to libraries that were written assuming 
that multiprocessing wouldn't happen.  To get the equivalent in Ruby you 
need to go to Processes.)
