Comment on "Does Ruby on Rails Scale?"
by Kay Roepke — Feb 16
I actually thought that Ruby's problem was that the interpreter does no bytecode caching...
I expect that the Rails framework is written using reasonable algorithms, i.e. I totally trust there are smart guys writing something like Rails. Who am I to question their capabilities?

It's just that each time I tried Ruby I thought it was awfully slow, nothing compared to Perl or Python (which I don't have too much experience with, though).

I'm not in the business of Ruby bashing, so if it turns out that Ruby 2 is fast enough, and I have a new project at hand that would benefit from using Rails - count me in.
