And while I understand your point, please see my note to Jerome. If youdecide to use RoR as a mission critical system component, you are implicitly taking on DHH as a partner in your company. It's just something you need to consider.
This is not nearly as true in the case of RoR as it is in the case of Microsoft (or even IBM). I'd rather partner with a guy who cusses than an unethical company like Microsoft.
Good points in this discussion are being made though, and it is certainly true that RoR needs to be evaluated by each person considering deploying it. But that's no different than any tech afaict.
