I was thinking about why to use IronRuby and one of the things that came
to my mind is because of better gems like spec, cucumber etc. Mostly my
use of IronRuby is around unit testing .NET CLR frameworks. But then
.NET CLR implementations is catching up with all these tools like
specflow and (.NET implementation for cucumber not sure about the name).

RAKE is awesome but usually I just use sh to execute shell scripts and
perform the build. Currently, I am not interacting RAKE with .NET
assemblies so it is pure Ruby implementation.

So, what do you think? Where would you use IronRuby?
