Decisions and the Reasons For
- In Ruby v. Scheme, Don Box says, “While I’ll admit to having a short but pleasurable tryst with Ruby, I believe I have found true love in the dialect of Lisp called Scheme.” I see. So he was scheming with Ruby. That can’t be very fulfilling ultimately. [link]
- In Ruby People v. Other People, Martin Fowler says, “[A camper] said that the Ruby community was generally more pleasant and more friendly to newbies. (He wondered if any of this was due to Ruby’s Japanese origins.)” Let’s continue to discuss this at MatzIsNiceSoWeAreNice.
- In Linux Packagement v. RubyGems, we’ve seen progress. A discussion on ruby-core yielded all the pent up anxieties of the repackagers, giving us a good list of how RubyGems could be tailored to work. I think everyone’s feeling better and I hope repackagers everywhere are kicking it back with a cold one right now.
