Well it's up to him, and I don't know if it's true about him looking for a job but making games and selling them online can actually be a nice little earner. Especially since once you've made something decent you can take a job and let it just sit there and make extra money for you.
Ruby has the advantage of having a clear owner (and de facto project leader) unlike a lot of /tg/ projects, which can't really be commercialised because so many (often anonymous) people are involved and could claim a portion of the rights.
Now there's something to be said for artistic integrity and non-commercial projects, but the fact is that non-commercial projects eat up leisure time when people could be doing other things, so the temptation to go do something else leads to the death of many such projects.
So personally I think he miiight be onto a good thing here, and should hire some of the people who've been drawfagging - and maybe you too for coding, if he isn't a great programmer himself - to work on some sort of modest commercial Ruby project and see if it flies. I'd probably invest, particularly after seeing those wallpapers - there's a mix of sort of loony tunes/silent hill/watership down that's quite eyecatching there.
