I Love Ruby Because ..
...of the the way it beautifully integrates blocks (lambdas) directly into functions.
I really enjoyed while working with Ruby and its truly gives lot of fun for a java programmer like me:-)
It's sexy :P
it isn't as gafferesk as perl
sexy syntax, easy to read and understand
Due to rich set of libraries and Metaprogramming ...
Easy syntax to learn, active developer community building things that they love .
I can write code, get feedback quickly, and iterate very quickly to a working solution. Iterators and blocks working together make it really easy to put a lot of functionality into a few lines.
With ruby your aren't a programmer, but the true modern Artist!
it 'thinks' the way I think
