    I am not satisfied by this argument.

    I don’t think unseating rails is easy, and the author’s prediction may very well come true, I don’t agree with the reasoning for why. Inertia is powerful, brainshare is hard to overcome.

    Dumping any semblance of what folks call “magic” as a discriminator isn’t what is going to win folks over. I can’t say for certain what will, except that having unique and clear advantages will help. It’s about timing, luck, effort, money, and ideas.

        It’s too late for anything to unseat Rails because Ruby and Rails (not Ruby on Rails) are old news. If developers are frustrated enough by Rails to use a newer framework, they might as well use a newer language too.
