Basically you are setting the stage for a long list of posts about
various programming languages.  :-}

Python has that whole whitespace for control thing.  Love it or hate
it I think all would agree that if it were not for that one feature
that Python would be the dominant language today if not for that one
design decision.

Pretty much all comparisons of Ruby and Python will be to Perl and
everthing said about Ruby would apply to Python and the reverse.  They
are really quite similar as compared to Perl.  You probably could not
go wrong with either of them.

Personally I really like Ruby.
