    What are the main differences between Ruby and SELF in day-to-day work
    with creating "software"? I.e. I have read the description of SELF, but
    I felt that I wouldnt need SELF if I just learn it because I want to see
    what it offers (since I doubt that SELF is better than Ruby and I use
    Ruby happily since quite many years already).

    Quite curious about it though.

    Conceptionally Self is very interesting but when I checked last Self
    just was not an option on Linux. Did that change?

    Just found while musing about Self:
    http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/self-interest/message/2019

    So it seems to run on linux now (again) as well.

    I somehow doubt that anybody is using Self as a day-to-day work language.

    stupide, anzi, =E8 una macchina stupida che funziona solo nelle mani
    delle persone intelligenti.
    Computers are not smart to help stupid people, rather they are stupid
    and will work only if taken care of by smart people.
