Several interesting points, here's two: 1) yes, Ruby is slow, but that's irrelevant since most apps are I/O bound, and most performance bottlenecks are database access. In exceptional cases, horizontal scalability (easy addition of new hardware) can make up for it. 2) "We've been also big fans of using JRuby for deployments. JRuby allows people to use the standard Java Web-App stack, which can make it much easier to deal with in many corporate settings. Mingle has also used this approach to make it easier to install for customers. Indeed the Mingle team does all its development with the MRI but deploys to JRuby. They do this because the faster startup time of the MRI makes it quicker to develop on."
