I've been programming in Ruby for about 1.5 years, and rubyforge is
one of the strong "features" of the community. It's a central place
where libraries can be distributed easily to other ruby hackers. From
my limited experience with Haskell (about 5 months), finding,
installing, and using libraries is one of the bigger pains.

For example, if I want to install Rails (ruby web-app framework), I just type:

  gem install rails

It's pretty slick.
