PHP vs Ruby on Rails

May 29, 2007

Terry Chay over at “The Woodwork” has a length but nicely written blog post about a PHP vs Ruby on Rails discussion. If you’re interested in that kind of stuff, read the article: it has some juicy humor sprinkled into it as well; it’s a bit flame bait too…

Favorite quote (quoting another quote):

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.
 -Mahatma Gandhi

OSCON 2005:

Unless you're Ruby.
 -Danny O'Brien, On Evil

And:

I can't speak for Alex, but what I'm saying is look at the top 100 websites on
the internet: about 40% of them are written in PHP and 0% of them are written
in Rails. (Yes, I can (and am) using this statistic to grind you Ruby fuckers
into the dust.)
