Original OSNews Interviews A few days ago we featured an interview with one of Fink's project leaders regarding their package management solution which breeds more Unix software to MacOSX. Today, we host an interview with Jordan Hubbard regarding the DarwinPorts, speaking for the DarwinPorts Team which a similar effort to bring more Unix software on Mac OS X. Jordan is currently working at Apple and OpenDarwin (while many will know Jordan as the FreeBSD co-founder).

ehhh

I don't know.....ruby is ok, but it is not as...nice....to learn as Python IMHO. there are some oddities in there.

realy, when you compair ruby to python to perl, they all can do the same things (out side of graphics which AFAIK perl can not do) and they can do it well. so if you like to program with a bagillion diffrent ways to do one thing then perl is great for you, if you like easy to read and manage then python is for you...and ruby is close enough to python than it is good for readability and manageability(does ruby have better performance than python?)
