No, Ruby is not better than Python.  You can get real work done with Python.

You can get Ruby to do stuff also ..... right after you de-rail it!   :P

Both and neither. Ruby's serial library blows on Windows, while the Python one works everywhere. Python and Ruby are both fragmented. For Ruby, it's 1.8 => 1.9. For Python, it's 2.0 => 3.0.
