What Ruby developers really want
What’s your biggest beef with Ruby today? A need for a better thought out sandbox model, people conflating Ruby and Rails (my personal vote), or some other issue? For 50% of Ruby Inside readers it appears to be performance. This is interesting because it’s one of the easiest things that can be remedied RIGHT NOW. Yup, just switch to JRuby and (barring some native extension problems) you’re up and running and faster. Sometimes this performance boost is quite significant as the JRuby team regularly demonstrates in their blog posts. So what are you waiting for, go grab the fastest Ruby available and start enjoying that performance!
