This was excellent the way there were comparisons to other languages. I'd like to see more articles dedicated to this kind of thing. say a simple task (no Hello World please) compared in lets say, BASH , TCSH, Perl, Python, Ruby, Java, PHP and Applescript/osascript to see how the languages compare in complexity of their syntax and what each could be used for for maximum flexibility.

This could get more people interested in these languages and could set off a trend in some of the lesser known ones.
O'Reilly keep these kind of articles coming. PLEASE!
