[ or ] Python.

I guess it depends on what you want to do.

Perl is perhaps a bit out-of-date compared to Ruby and Python.

And i wont even mention P*P.

That it does and each language has its "specialty" .

I would definitely not say that. First, Perl still has the most powerful Regular Expression engine of any other language. Plus, have you seen the advancements in Perl 6? The language may seem "out-of-date" to some, but it is current and quite the contender.

... but the Perl syntax reminds me of C! Ruby is the most beautiful language to me. And it offers even more different ways to do something than python.

Another I've noticed is django - a python based web language. It seems to be very powerful as well.

I just moved to another company that's mainly a Java/.NET shop. I was happy to find out that there's a movement from the grassroot to try to convince the boss to use a dynamic language for our development! Two of the senior developers, however, are already rooting for Ruby on Rails--although they haven't tried RoR themselves. When I suggested Django, they went like, "what's that?". I said, "It's like the Python counterpart of RoR".

First, I don't intend this to be a flame war, please. Python and Ruby are the only two languages I'd willingly work in (at least amongst common languages), and TurboGears and Rails seem roughly equivalent. I'm much more knowledgable about Python, but that's a minor issue--I've been intending to learn more Ruby anyway. Here are the pros and cons that I'm aware of and consider important:
