Why you should use Rails 3 and not Django

I wrote a blog post recently titled 'Django vs Rails' and I had a lot of people read it. In the post I was very much more pro Django, but I do believe Rails 3 changes the outlook somewhat. Over the summer I was able to go to Euro-Python in Birmingham, UK and RubyConf in Tsukuba, Japan.

Ruby Hash is not ordered

Just to let you know, I had a hash like below in a test

options_hash = {"把手タイプ"=>"バー把手(E)", "扉カラー"=>"ナディマスカット(NM)", "シンクの位置"=>"左シンクタイプ", "ガス種"=>"プロパンガス(LPG)"}

Little request for Ruby on Rails

One thing that drives me mad about rails since I am not using it everyday is forms.
Although I love it to pieces why do you need 2 types of form helper (one for forms wrapped around an object and one for not). Although after a little time you find yourself remembering which is which.
But Why?
Rails is supposed to save pain which it usually does, but I find form helpers in other frameworks far easier to use as I don't have to think about these different helpers. Lets hope they fix it in Rails 3.
