Discussion on: On Death and Dying: Ruby on Rails

Nice article. I always kind of laugh when people call certain things dead or dying because it is very subjective and typically overstated. What is ironic to me is many 'dead' languages and frameworks are still deployed and need maintenance ou there in the world. I use deprecated /dead frameworks/protocols/language versions frequently because large enterprises can be very slow to move or not have proper motivation to migrate. Perhaps not as popular or hyped these days (RoR) I still believe it will be around for a long time and always remain a viable option.
