Jemand hatte gerade auf nem Blog einen Kommentar bzgl. Rails vs.  

I’ve been playing with Avi Bryant’s continuation-based web framework  
Seaside, which is written in Smalltalk. Wow. That’s all I can say.
After some recent work with Rails, I had come to admire the  
cleanliness of the framework—even if, on occasion, I had some complaints
about short-cuts taken that need not be necessary. Compared to  
Seaside, Rails seems to me to be a jalopy.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s a seriously pimped out jalopy, but the easy  
with which one can build interactivity and modify it on the
fly with Seaside is mind-blowing.
NB: Don’t take this as a slam of Rails, as it’s not. Rails is  
brilliant—for what it is. It takes the historical model of page  
interaction and data
storage to new heights of simplicity. It doesn’t, however, change how  
you view the web. Seaside does. Whether you use it for your next
project, or not, it’s worth looking at, going through the tutorials,  
and allowing your mind to conceive of a web that simply behaves more
