rails - django speed comparison

I wonder whether anyone here can comment on the disappointing
benchmarks for Rails, reported a few weeks ago at


Poor results? 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*! :slight_smile:
