I actually like Ruby, and I have had no issues with it whatsoever. I have become kind of addicted to Rake (Ruby Make), and I am using it for my build process. I am working on a kind of standard toolset for builds, with a few different programs and whatnot, like Ruby, Perl, and Python, along with some tools like Wget, 7-zip, WinMerge, and so on.
