There are many programming languages, there are many operating  
systems, there are many linux distros, and there are many web  
frameworks. Yet python is the best programming language, linux is the  
best os, ubuntu is the best distro, web2py is the best framework.  
Sorry, just kidding. The point I want to make is that some times  
having a choice is good. Things evolve and are subject to artificial  
selection by the users.

So far none of the big python frameworks has won the public as much  
as Rails. I do not think this is because of Python vs Ruby. And I  
also do not think that Rails is that great product, just easier to  
use than most python frameworks.
