Java code is mostly text... long chunks of repeated text and redundant squiggle marks.

Ruby is prettier. And made mostly of empty space.

Tufte would approve.

Having just recently done some light development in all three, I feel comfortable saying that he would like Python *almost* as much.

Python had the same feel as Ruby, but still had some extra wordiness compared to Ruby. Ruby has more of an "everything is optional, and the default is sensible" thing going on.
