I agree - the biggest issue I have with Ruby is the duck typing, it's really easy to get oneself in trouble and it results in bad architecture (actually, no architecture). I really miss strong typing and good design practices (mainly interfaces and inheritance) that are simply missing. It doesn't mean that one can't do those things in Ruby, it's just that they're not typically done.
 
I just started looking at WebSharper[^], mainly out of curiosity, and it's interesting that they can convert F# to Javascript. Some interesting possibilities, and it's more in the direction that I'd like to see code being written - write in some common language and use the damn computer to generate the JavaScript. Seems like we're not using our tools to their fullest capacity, but that's nothing new.
