I think that's a false statement. The quote from an editor at O'Reilly was:

"Ruby on Rails is the only framework that's picked up enough interest to
have a market for a book. I appreciate your contacting me, but at this
point all I can suggest for Catalyst is an article for perl.com. There
are many such projects jockeying for users; the race may perhaps not end
up going to Ruby. But we have to start small."

That does not say "ORA is a RoR shop", but rather "RoR is the most popular",
which to the best of my knowledge is true. He never closed the door.

<moof> I always think about the production machines when I think of olivia - because god, she has such a nice rackspace.
