Merits of the language and run time environment aside, which community do
you want to hang with?  My experience is that python-heads are an agreeable
bunch of hard-core coders.  Ruby-heads remind me of Java-heads -- not good.
Perl-heads are, well, perl-heads; you've probably met some.

Flame on.  ;)
