> It's hard to find good/great developers period and when you find them language is rarely a concern

Totally correct, however, with Ruby I think it's easier to find them primarily as there are less Ruby devs about, and using your example above, more or them are intermediate/senior (40% for Ruby, 10% for PHP). Then again intermediate/senior != good/great.

(Disclaimer: we're a PHP shop, but know a lot of really talented Rubyists)

My point being that it's not easier to find them because there isn't as many of them available. The ratio may be better but the gross numbers aren't.
