Oh, today is a sad, sad day for me.
Ruby seems to be as slow as Python3; which, in my <a href="http://blog.woralelandia.com/2012/06/05/benchmarks_2012/" title="Benchmarks: PHP, Perl, Python, Python3 and Ruby">previous benchmark</a>, was not! It was just between PHP and Python2.
Not the published one but, I remember, ruby was around 400 ms... damn... really, I am sad... sniff... sniff...
