Can we compare apples and oranges?
They're both fruit.  Both round.  Both come from trees.
But they're still vastly different.

Tcl's great as a simple, small, embeddable scripting language.
Ruby is great as an OO scripting language.

My opinion: no.  It's just soooo easy to create/pack/grid widgets
in Tcl/Tk.  Seems like all the toolkits for Ruby really make it
much messier.  It's not Ruby's fault, though.

Just my thoughts on it.
