in python, ruby, twisted

Troll of the day: Why Ruby sucks and why Python rocks!

I found a nicely written article about the problems with Ruby, written by a Ruby user, and why he found Python to be really good. There’s even a quote about Twisted!

And, there are a bunch of things available to a Python guy that Ruby just can’t compete with that are of particular interest to me. Two that come to mind immediately are Twisted and Stackless Python. The former was used by others at TurnTide for creating a really powerful SMTP testing tool and the latter was used by TurnTide’s competitor IronPort to build one of the industry’s best MTAs.

I didn’t knew that IronPort was done in Python, even in Stackless Python!
