If those results had been available 1 year ago, nobody would ever complain about RoR speed! Nevertheless, I'll repeat the mantra: Rails isn't the fastest framework. It's built to be fast to develop, which is better and cheaper for most people than being the most efficient deployment platform. You could, after all, write an Apache module in C to server your entire application. Now *that* would be *fast*! :-) -- -- Tom Mornini, CTO -- Engine Yard, Ruby on Rails Hosting -- Reliability, Ease of Use, Scalability -- (866) 518-YARD (9273)
