I’m interested in learning more about Rails.  Something always seemed off to me with ASP.NET, where easy scenarios with classic ASP became much more difficult in ASP.NET.  Working with DataGrids and GridViews is always a nightmare.  All of the ViewState, page event lifecycle, postbacks, controls, etc. seemed to abstract the easy stuff (HTML) and mostly just get in the way of what I want to do.
