Microsoft on Rails?
It takes a long time to turn a supertanker around.
At last it seems Microsoft are releasing something to support the same elegant features that Rails has had for Ruby for ages. It is currently being referred under a "ASP.NET 3.5 Extensions" title, although these include other bits and bobs of catch-up. A welcome move on the face of it and something to play with over Christmas: I hope they haven't bloated it.
