Ruby has a lot of Smalltalk ideas in it and implements OO very nicely
(cleaner than Python, imho). Python has a Lisp slant.

Python is more popular, has much better community support and more
libraries.

But, as someone else already said, both are really easy to pick up, so
it is a good idea to learn both. You won't regret it.
