We are going to wait to see how much interest there will be from our
customers. To date, I have to say, there hasn't been much. To be
perfectly honest, neither have we had much interest from the people here
who are already using IronRuby. Bear in mind that we released the alpha

for Adobe Flex - that project has generated a great deal of interest and
so we would need to be very convinced indeed that transferring
development time back to IronRuby would be a sensible use of our
I plan to ask our existing users for feedback on IronRuby shortly (I'll
