Recently I have heard only good things about Ruby. You know Ruby, right? Just in case, you can check what Ruby exactly is. In two small words I can say that Ruby is both a simple and a powerful language.
If you may want to learn more about Ruby, I think you should start in one of these places: or

And as it always gets nicer, you can also develop web applications in a web application framework written in the Ruby programming language. This web application framework is Ruby on Rails. As is the language, so is the framework: it tries to be as simple as it can get and unlike other frameworks, it allows real-world applications to be developed in less code - from scratch - and with minimal configuration.
I came across a site which helps you set up a Rails Development Environment on Windows using Eclipse. The site gives you help in various aspects: getting Ruby, configuring Eclipse for Rails, help with several tools and plugins, even debugging and troubleshooting. And the site will be updated with other interesting features.

Do remember the creator of Ruby: Yukihiro Matsumoto, whose intent was to maximize the joy of programming.
