Rails or php?(appreciate all opinions)

Hi, I have a small webdesign company and got to a point where I have a
small self made php based cms. I never liked php and that’s why i
started looking for something different. I 've started to learn a
little ruby and rails so i have some idea how it all looks like. My
question in basically whether to use php or ruby for my further
developing, and when with ruby shall i try making something of my own
or rather learn to use rafinery or radiant. Now I’m making simple and
moderately complicate websites with a bit of jquery and flash.
Eventually I want to have a cms to use for simple sites but flexible
enough to make something more complicated with some extra coding…
I’ll appreciate all your opinions.

Neither PHP or Ruby is a CMS on its own, but if you’re considering one,
lot of people on this list would state a preference for Ruby. If you’re
thinking about customizing an existing CMS system or framework, I think
most mature options are probably those that have been developed in PHP,
though that could be a subject for some debate. Ultimately though, you
should choose the tool that gives you the best leverage over the set of
problems you face in your work.

I answered your question when you posted this in the ruby forum as well.
