Resolver One - Beta

There are plenty of languages laying around. They are tools with advantages and disadvantages. Knowing them allows us to know which are best to the job at hand. Recently I reflected on which languages would I use for different tasks.

If I had an idea for a killer web site I would go with Ruby on Rails. I have done one app using it and was very happy with it.

If I were making a windows app, I would code against .NET. The language of choice for this task would be Nemerle. Nemerle is a functional language with powerful macros (don't confuse with C macros) targeted at .NET Framework.

What would I use to add some processing to a spreadsheet? Python would be my first choice :). Resolver One allows to script a spreadsheet with Python. The Beta has just been released [download].
