Bastien Labelle has posted a new (tongue-in-cheek) post to his blog today about a presentation he and a friend of his recently gave at a conference - Why PHP is so Much Better than Ruby.

Of course, saying that PHP is so much better than Ruby is pure bullshit, and this talk is, as I hope you guessed, a big big sarcasm. Trolling apart, I think this talk is also quite interesting, since somehow it shows some of the weaknesses of Ruby and its ecosystem.

Included in the post are their slides and a brief transcript of the main points they mentioned. Also interesting are some of the comments mentioning the typing issues the talk discussed and the fact that popularity isn't the same as quality.
