Is Ruby on Rails really better than ColdFusion?

Just saw this, it's hillarious:

What do you all say to those that insist that Ruby on Rails is better than ColdFusion? What's that stuff about a big bug on Myspace?

A few years ago the people who originally developed MySpace showed off their code at the CFUN keynote that year. Frankly their code sucked, in the realm of stagnant canal water. Their solution to any slowness etc was to throw more hardware at it.

As far as the ROR video, aside from the half truths etc., it isn't bad, just the typically conceited self referential crud I've seen out of the people who developed Ruby On Rails. What i would love to see is for a group of ROR developers and CF developers build functionally equivalent sites, and see which one is finished faster, which one scales better etc.

I don't know too much about Ruby on Rails. But you should probably compare it with CF on Rails ( I haven't tried that out.

About that big bug on Myspace, I don't know the details but I wouldn't be surprised. From what I've heard, the code behind Myspace is very, very shaky. This site was built when it was growing rapidly and the developers could hardly keep up with it all. So, inevitably, quite a few bugs were liable to creep in. You might want to go through the archives at - there was some discussion about Myspace and the BlueDragon controversy
