Ruby sucks! Kind of!
Ok, well not really. Not even a little. But there seems to be a misconception about what
ruby is. I hope to clarify somethings by first comparing it to other languages, then by ripping it apart in a constructive way.
Every computer language serves to let human control computers, and nothing more. Every language creator chooses an abstraction level that they feel fits with their needs. And in the end every computer language creates strings of 0s and 1s.
