Embedded systems have mRuby, which is super-hot in robotics right now.

[citation needed] I know tons of embedded programmers and not a single one uses Ruby in their work.

It is a set of C libraries, you can pick and choose which parts of the language you want to build in, and it runs almost anywhere with 32bit registers and x (some small amount) RAM.

So basically excluding a large part of the embedded market that runs on 8-bit and 16-bit microcontrollers with KB of RAM and ROM.

Clarificiation on the IP Address Security in Dropbox Case 148

Posted by samzenpus
from the read-all-about-it dept.
Bennett Haselton writes A judge rules that a county has to turn over the IP addresses that were used to access a county mayor's Dropbox account, stating that there is no valid security-related reason why the IP addresses should be exempt from a public records request. I think the judge's conclusion about IP addresses was right, but the reasoning was flawed; here is a technically more correct argument that would have led to the same answer. Keep Reading to see what Bennett has to say about the case.

and the DSL language chosen as the basis for most of the infrastructure management tools used today for the cloud....

In what alternate universe? There are 23 such tools listed on Wikipedia and only 3 are written in Ruby and/or use Ruby as one of the DSLs for configuration. 13% is hardly "most".

Optimization hinders evolution.
