Troll(s) Of The Month: Django Kicks Rails’ Ass?
There was no "Troll of the Month" feature in November, because I couldn't find any. December has started off strong, though, with two articles: Why Django Kicks Ruby on Rails' Collective Ass and Constructive Reasons to use Django Instead of Rails. While the first is definitely the most inflammatory, both make bizarre arguments (amongst some good ones, admittedly) and seem to be nothing but "let's bitch about Rails to make Django look better"-fests.
One key argument is, essentially: 'Django is better because Python is better'. This seems as wise as 'God must exist because the Bible says so'. Just because somebody thinks Python 'is' better doesn't mean that it is. This is preaching to the converted. Another curiousity is that Django is better because it's '(mostly) buzzword free'. Supposedly, 'RoR' is a 'buzzword' but 'Django' isn't. Perhaps because there's little buzz about Django compared to Rails?
