Mind you my background is not the same as many here, being focused on industrial automation, but if find the use of nibs and Interface builder to be very taxing and not very object Oriented.  MacRuby would likely generate a lot more interest if they moved away from the interface builder approach to GUI development.    I know this will result in many arrows coming my way, but really folks lets be objective here IB is a very strange departure from most GUI development systems.  

That was essentially the goal of the HotCocoa project, but it seems that very few folks shared your concerns or your desire for XIB-less UI development since outside contributions (once Rich moved on to other things) have been extremely minimal.
