Object Technology: What's the Coolest New Language?

Smalltalk programmers have been depressed since Java started dominating the landscape, but a few of them have found hope again in a gem of a language where everything is an object, and syntax is clean, and programmers can have fun again! Ruby is highly recommended.

"The most important concepts in Ruby can be written in the letters FUN and JOY. Programming is supposed to be fun, but for various reasons, we often forget that. Ruby helps you to remember programming joy again."
