    I've looked into it and it's definitely a competitor for PHP and ASP at this point. It's best used for rapid application development and there have been some really nice sites coming out that are built in Ruby. For example, www.43things.com.

    Scott, is it able to do everything what php/asp can do? or it is used in some specific applications not solved by php?

    It can do everything PHP or ASP can do. The syntax is completely different but it's a fully featured language.
