Why I love Rails

After working on a .Net project again at http://www.sentia.com.au today I just thought ild list a few points about why I love rails so much and am starting to really dislike some things about .Net. Im sure there are many more things to add to this list as I learn more and more.

- Coding by convention. I love it that there is a set way of doing things that you only have to learn once regardless of which company you are working for.
- Relaxed syntax rules. I love the way in ruby you can leave out braces if your not in a braces mode and not one compiler is going to care or bug me about it.
- A vibrant community of people are there for support. Sure .Net may have more comprehensive documentation in the MSDN and multiple but damn its got some boring people behind it. Also when searching on google the results are usually flooded with the last 10 years of newbies posts. Although im sure that will happen with rails as well but its not the case ATM.

Thats it for the moment, but I'm sure more will come to mind in the future.
