Not a battle to the death, obv. Instead, an exploration of this wonderful observation (link starts 1 minute early for context):
I’m afraid that what this means is that the very attrbutes of Ruby that I find distasteful are what give rise to all the wonderful software that Python can never have. And vice versa, that the very thing that makes Python æsthetically pleasing to me is what leads to it not being able to do any of this cool stuff, ever.
By the way: it’s only a 21-minute talk, the 6 minutes of questions are quite skippable.
