My original blog on frameworks was 9 mos ago - see my blog at
www.johntaber.com . I see Cake and Rails as the 2 best featured
framework contenders. If it's language over features then go with Cake,
if it's features over language then go with Rails. We were going along
writing our own MVC classes but it was hindering progress. These
frameworks will get you going much faster on your app. For now we've
chose Rails features over language but your mileage may vary.
