Ruby vs SELF


#1

What are the main differences between Ruby and SELF in day-to-day work
with creating “software”? I.e. I have read the description of SELF, but
I felt that I wouldnt need SELF if I just learn it because I want to see
what it offers (since I doubt that SELF is better than Ruby and I use
Ruby happily since quite many years already).

Quite curious about it though.

Conceptionally Self is very interesting but when I checked last Self
just was not an option on Linux. Did that change?

Just found while musing about Self:
http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/self-interest/message/2019

So it seems to run on linux now (again) as well.

I somehow doubt that anybody is using Self as a day-to-day work
language.

Il computer non è una macchina intelligente che aiuta le persone
stupide, anzi, è una macchina stupida che funziona solo nelle mani
delle persone intelligenti.
Computers are not smart to help stupid people, rather they are stupid
and will work only if taken care of by smart people.
