Up to this point I have been knee-deep in .NET - ASP.NET, VB.NET, C#
and starting to look into Silverlight 3 Beta. I’ve been using
the .NET platform for 5+ years now. It’s really nice, I don’t have a
lot of bad things to say about it.
Currently I’m a one-man shop. I have a few .NET clients that I
support and that’s fine and dandy. However, I continue to get this
itch that wants to be scratched. Part of me really wants to let go of
the .NET world and ramp up development with Ruby on Rails. I know
this feeling is also a result moving from PC to Mac. In a perfect
world, I would use my primary machine to develop applications.
What are your feelings on this? Have you moved from .NET to RoR?
Windows to Mac? Why? It’s a challenge I would like to take on but I
want to be smart about it too. If I have technologies in my pocket
that work, why should I go elsewhere?
