Discussion on: What to choose: Ruby or Python?

Wait what? Ruby is by no means efficient, and while it is viable for high-traffic applications, you'll have to throw much more hardware at it than with other languages. There's also nothing about python (or ruby, for that matter) that makes it specially well-suited for long and complex projects.

Saying ruby has a "limited" set of libraries is the most blatant lie in that whole article though. Rails is pretty much known for having a gem for almost everything. Same goes for reusability: ruby code is just as reusable as python. They both have a way of importing modules and a package manager.
