Hi guys:
Just got ruby installed with the aim of taking a look at the language. The first code I wrote "Hello world!" was simply awsome; I was wondering what you guys think is the future of this language and framework vis a vis Groovy which I saw as I was about to make this posting? I really want to know if it worths the investment in time, because to me it looks like a simple language to learn... at least compared to Java.

Ruby is well worth several hard looks.

I am certainly a Ruby fan for certain application types.

Regards, Guy

What Guy said.

Ruby is a great language and Rails is a great request-response web framework.
