    Ruby On Rails vs. ASP.Net

    I have considered picking up Ruby On Rails as another language for my projects. Does anyone have an unbiased opinion as to how RoR compares to ASP.Net as a development framework? Pros or Cons?

    If you like more componentized approach with .NET power then ASP.NET is the way to go. Otherwise rails may suit you better. One practical thing a rail is better is that it can follow true bidirectional associations.
    Pros of Ruby on Rails:
    * Open Source and Community Driven
    * Cross platform, works every where
    * Extremely Scalable
    * Built in unit testing and Ajax support
    Cons of Ruby on Rails:
    * No Unicode yet. You can over come this with JRuby on Rails and Iron Ruby on Rails
    * Green threads. It doesn't use real os threads. Look above.
    * The down side of the MVC pattern. You have to type a lot of html
    * Most software shops don't know about it. So it is unlikely that you can use it at work.
