Trisha - you might think so, but I get chastised for being a java purist and doubting what I consider passing trends or inferior technologies - I'm getting on my high horse again, but I think most developers are arrogant deep down :P

It is tempting trouble a little bit to ask a java mailing list if ruby is
better than java...

What constitutes "better" when discussing language syntax?

You mention the JVM, are you talking about the standard ruby implementation
or JRuby?

I think such vague questions are little better than flamebait. Maybe you
should read Eric Raymond's article on "how to ask smart questions"
