Commercial Support for Ruby

Hi Everyone,

I am trying to "sell" my manager on the idea of using Ruby to develop

some of our new products. One of the things he told me was that, in
looking toward the future, in order to be ISO 900x qualified, we must be
using languages for which there exists commercial support. He asked if
there was any commercial support for Ruby. Thus, my question:

 Does anyone know of any firms (not individual consultants) which

offer commercial support for, or a commercialized version of Ruby?

If you could send your replies to me, personally, I’d appreciate it,
as I’m no longer subscribed to the mailing list due to pressures of
work, lack of time, etc. Thanks alot.

Hum, what would you pay me if I look into the
newsgroups for you?
We could make a contract and you’ll have ‘commercial support’
:wink:

(…Just another ISO-900x-nonsense …)

Can you please explain where is the difference between a support
company and a one person consultants company ? In german law
every independent consultant runs its own company.

How many persons (consultants ?) must this company employ before
you can accept them ?
How can you be sure that in a 40 person company there is more then
one developer that knows ruby ?

And can you highlight where i can find the ISO900x paragraph that
forces you to have a “company” behind a language. It think that this
is one more misinterpreted feature.
