It appears that Microsoft is looking for people to work on IronPython and dynamic language support for the CLR.
Having Ruby apps run as native .Net code would be quite nice.

What are the advantages? I mean, it does not buy you multi-platform abilities. Perhaps you gain some performance (eventually).
I'm not a big .NET fan myself, but having IronPython runnning on the CLR is good when you have to call .NET stuff from Python.
Will it run on Mono too ?
Anyway, I'll stick with Ruby and Java :)

It should, if it is CLR and runs with Mono.
