Seaside/Ruby on Rails/.Net/etc. (was Re: Seaside Examples?)

I'm working on an article on Seaside for DevSource (which is oriented  
around Windows programmers, but which the editors have also found that  
actual code, regardless of platform, is more attractive to readers than  
anything else) and was wondering if anyone here had any experiences they  
wanted to share on using Seaside versus using other technologies.

It appears to me that all these technologies are primarily concerned with  
preserving state in the stateless environment of the web. Is there more to  
it than that, really?

Also, is there an advantage, do y'all think, in Smalltalk having a plug-in  
VM? That is to say, do you think it's easier to segue from Seaside to a  
rich-client type experience in Smalltalk than these other technologies?
