Poll: Have you tried Ruby on Rails?

Let us know whether you've used Ruby on Rails, and if so, whether you like it for your development projects.

A few weeks ago, I experimented with Ruby on Rails. I found a lot to like, and some parts that I didn't like. While I am not sure if it is the right technology for me (Agile Platform's handling of data has really spoiled me), I am impressed with the offering, and for certain projects I would absolutely consider working with Rails.

I'm curious to hear TechRepublic readers' opinions about Ruby on Rails. Take the poll, and then share your thoughts on the subject in the comments.

One thing I read early on has proven to be true. The toughest times I've had was when I didn't let Rails help me where it clearly knew what it was doing.

So far, everyone who has tried it either likes it or hasn't formed an opinion. It's hard not to like it once you become familiar with it, although it certainly isn't perfect.
