I'm looking at learning Ruby (including Ruby On Rails) or Python (Including any of its frameworks - though which is better?). What are the pros/cons of each? Thanks in advance.

knowing more Ruby than Python, it'd be my initial choice. But I'd use Python if I knew it to be more appropriate for the job at hand.

So are you saying that it comes to a personal preference: whether you prefer fun or productivity? ... But not both?

I can handle detail, please tell me.

Ruby is my opinion....

I also prefer Ruby. It is fun!

Ruby is more used language than Python.

Are there any showcases for both of them and/or can you link me to some sites that use them. Yet why are they your favourite and what are their most appropriate uses?
