David Heinemeier on Rails Scalability and the Importance of Programmer Culture

A .Net programmer asked on the Rails mailing list if the switch to Rails had really been worth it for him and whether Rails scales. David Heinemeier gives a nice and balanced reply pointing to the scalability of and but also stressing the importance of being in a programmer culture that you like.

By the way, I am very impressed by the Gmane mailing list web site that provides a very usable threaded web interface to mailing lists that is searchable. Kudos to the Gmane people (apparently in Norway) for volunteering to offer such an excellent service to the programming community! I feel like donating some money to them.
