Practical question on RoR
I am a C# developer, and also I have been working on Unix to support my colleagues on trading floors. So, I have many different fields' experience from client/server, .net/asp.net, to Unix box.
I have recently realized that RoR is an emerging development framework for web application, and I like to know if this RoR is really enterprise-ready framework platform.
I am evaluating Visual Studio 2008 and RoR to build CRM-like business management system, and I need your advice on this.

Ruby on Rails has a focus on speed of development and is very opinionated. The philosophy is that development time is expensive and computers are cheap. IMO Ruby on Rails is as good as any other framework, it's how you use it that matters. Of course you also need to use the right tool for the job and Rails is not always the right tool for the job so you need to evaluate your objectives and decide if Rails is the right fit for you.
