Ruby hit rocky ground at Microsoft

Hi,

(I have only see this info on few place so FYI, even if many rubyists
don’t particularly love Microsoft I think it’s a bad news for Ruby.)

“Microsoft’s open source IronRuby and IronPython projects are shrouded
in a dubious future as the last of the full-time IronRuby developers
departed the company last month.”

Blog post from the developer

Best regards

A.

That’s too bad as I was somewhat excited about IronRuby with Silverlight
as a “ruby in browser” opportunity…

I keep hoping someone will use alchemy[1] to get ruby (in some limited
form, at least) running on the flash vm. Most of the reasons I dislike
flash have to do with actionscript, rather than the vm,

Yeah that or maybe an NaCl client [1]? Rubinius perhaps?
