Which one is better down the road?
I have never worked with Ruby or Python so I'll take your word on the Python stuff. However, I have been looking at Ruby and see alot of exciting and interesting things going on. Maybe its just getting buzz, but It makes the decision to use one over the over more difficult. I currently employ PHP and ASP.NET for my dynamic applications and I really enjoy both, so where is the incentive to learn Ruby or Python for future use. Is one easier to pickup? Does one have better support? I would like to get into a more powerful language like Ruby or Python but I can't find the drive to do so.
Please dangle the carrot in front of my nose if you think you have a good idea.
