I’m interested in which is more powerful, easier to use, better documented, etc.
Personally I am using ruby-gtk (because of the wiki back then), and on
my current agenda is also to slowly add new knowledge to Ruby-qt so that
I can use this. (I think ruby-qt4 looks very decent.)
[I also try to never tie components to one particular toolkit, so that I
can quickly switch to other toolkits if need be.]
The biggest decisive factor for me back then was the documentation, and
the ruby-gtk wiki was superior therein to all the other toolkits IMO -
and I hope Lyle will implement some kind of wiki one day specifically
(The kde wiki guy for example approved my suggestion to start a kde-wiki
project for ruby-qt by the way, I just have not started it yet because I
lack the time these days. But maybe the Fox creator can do something
Anyway, FXRuby has one big thing going for it - this is Lyle!
(I mean this seriously by the way, a driving and knowledeable “force”
is of invaluable help in the long run. I have noticed this myself when I
needed help with RMagick, and the RMagick maintainer helped me a lot.)
Am I correct in thinking that FXRuby comes as part of the Windows 1-click
installer? That would be an advantage.
I am not sure, it could be that the user has to install it lateron. But
to be honest such a problem should be overcome rather quickly in an
automatic way, and if it is windows specific, maybe the windows folks
manage to either allow “hooks” (so that windows folks can distribute
their flavoured version of windows install components, i.e. you could
add Fox to that list easily) or allow a “big distribution” of various
components together, where one can select what he needs.
