Response to: Speed

you're right about speed, but I'm not sure about features on windows.
IO on win sucked with 1.6 but with 1.8 it works fine.
More, Ruby has access to win32api, easy COM/OLE control, WSH via ActiveRuby, interesting stuff like win32utils (eventlog,service,clipboard), vruby (native windows gui), Delphi bindings..

But, if you just tried it on windows and didn't liked it please exlain, If there is a itch maybe we should scratch it :)
