I wrote a series of articles last week, and created a pointer to them at Artima, where it's easy to collect comments: Ruby Makes My Head Explode http://www.artima.com/weblogs/viewpost.jsp?thread=162885 The collection includes: * Ruby Rocks! * Rake Rocks! * Getting Started in Ruby (links to articles and books, initial script and application templates) * Installing Ruby (with additions by John Gabriele) * Installing Ruby Gems * Which GUI Language to Use? (FxRuby vs. WxRuby) (opinions will no doubt differ. This is my initial view)

In a similar vein to your idea the Ruby makes programming a language design problem, I've felt Ruby's power comes about because it gives you access to the interpreter's data structures in an elegant and consistent way. Thanks for posting.
