Topic: what are the biggest threats to Rails' increasing popularity
I'm new to rails (from a PHP background) but already i'm a massive fan and I am convinced that ROR is a far superior development model or "paradigm" than those currently dominant in the web development community (e.g. PHP, .NET frameworks, Java Web Apps).
I was wondering what you guys thought about what threats exist to ROR at the moment, and what is possibly preventing Ruby on Rails from becoming the dominant development tool in the Web industry? Why haven't more people in the industry discovered and embraced the obviously immense benefits that ROR brings?
I've been told that ROR isn't considered 'production-ready' for large scale business app's, is there any truth in this?
