_ I was poking around and came across this in the REXX FAQ. 

Is REXX better than ?

Short answer: Yes. No. Maybe. Does it matter?

Long answer: This question wastes a lot of bandwidth in
comp.lang.rexx and other newsgroups. Every language has its good
points and its bad points. Some people love REXX, some people
hate it. Use a language that suits your needs. 

s/REXX/Ruby/g ( or python, java, forth, Ocaml, fortran, cobol.... ) 

_ I think we should ask everyone that shows up with 
the Ruby vs. Foo question what their needs are and 
if they can't answer that then the question should
be ignored. In general responding to the ruby vs foo
questions is a huge waste of time, nobody has ever
changed their mind as a result of these discussions.
The only reason to ask it is to confirm a decision 
already made. Feeding any kind of energy, even just
asking people to stop talking about it, into these
discussions is pointless. Frankly, if somebody's used
Ruby for a day and it's not glaringly obvious to them
why it's better, then it's probably never going to 
be better for them and no amount of discussion is 
going to convince them.
