With all the discussion about the Cubed project today, I guess I have not much 
humor left in me. ;-)

Yeah, but honestly I don't care. If people choose a technology on name 
recognition and not on technical merit, then it is their bad. However, I 
question the RoR hype. I wonder whether big companies seriously considering 
it; it has absolutely no track record. Zope 2 (and even 3) on the other hand 
is deployed on many huge sites and the risk of deploying it is low. Even 
deploying Zope 3 is a smaller risk than RoR.

I do not know. I have not looked at it, but I doubt it. There is a lot of 
experience in Zope 3. Also some users have reported coming back from RoR.
