Depends on what circles you're talking about. I think Rails is a bad
comparator, as Rails is just about the *only* thing people are doing
with Ruby. Most firms I interact with at work have their own
framework, or use a handful of frameworks as favorites.
Jobs are going for many PHP frameworks. Just as a real quick example:
After working with Rails and CakePHP (and others), I'll never go
back. Regardless of the language, there's help to be had by using a
framework. No reason to re-invent wheels and charge your clients for
it. Many people complain about the inflexibility of frameworks, and
I'd argue that any framework worth its salt is extensible and easy to
work in (and around).
