I see someone's had a similar experience as I. Coming into Ruby-on-Rails (RoR) after working with Python/Django, and C# ASP.NET-MVC, my productivity really schlowed to a crawl with RoR. The duck-typing is one factor: I much, much prefer to just have things explicit within the code structure so I can know what's going on. C# catches most of the errors that RoR happily lets slide and condemns you to hours of guessing and troubleshooting.

Another huge factor is - with RoR, things rarely actually work. It seems there's a wealth of online information that is incorrectly typed, or that just doesn't work as claimed. Things break with various versions, or are incompatible with, or there're way too many ways to accomplish the same thing. I came to the conclusion that the reason we see more online activity with RoR is: nothing's working, and everyone is still googling trying to find something that does! It is probable that I'd have had a better RoR experience had it been my very first development platform: I got so spoiled with C# and ASP.NET-MVC that RoR is a horror-show of incompatible, non-working madness.
