This thread reminds me of an article I read recently:


It's mostly a matter of having enough time to evaluate what's best for you.
In the case of RoR vs Django, you will (assuming zero knowledge) need to
learn a language, then a framework. That's quite a time consuming task.
Personally I've opted for Django because I've used Python for years. I've
written some Ruby in the past, but I not enough to make me choose RoR over
Django to get stuff done.
