OK, actually the holy wars over platforms and languages isn't all that entertaining. But still, for all the hype surrounding Ruby on Rails, I had to check it out to see if I'm really missing something.
Looking at examples, I don't think I am. It's an interesting approach to be sure, but I'm not seeing anything that jumps out at me as being more super sweet than anything I can do with ASP.NET today. In fact, I was thinking about how I should build the same app using VWD and SQL Express that they use in this tutorial. I bet I could do it faster.
But who has that kind of free time? :)
