+ <p>
+ “Rails is the most well thought-out web development framework I’ve ever used.<br>
+ And that’s in a decade of doing web applications for a living. I’ve built my<br>
+ own frameworks, helped develop the Servlet API, and have created more than<br>
+ a few web servers from scratch. Nobody has done it like this before.”
+ </p>
+ <p><cite>– James Duncan Davidson, Creator of Tomcat and Ant</cite></p>
+ </blockquote>
+ <blockquote>
+ <p>
+ “Ruby on Rails is a breakthrough in lowering the barriers of entry to programming.<br>
+ Powerful web applications that formerly might have taken weeks or months<br>
+ to develop can be produced in a matter of days.”
+ </p>
+ <p><cite>– Tim O'Reilly, Founder of O'Reilly Media</cite></p>
+ </blockquote>
+ <blockquote>
+ <p>
+ “It is impossible not to notice Ruby on Rails. It has had a huge effect both in<br>
+ and outside the Ruby community... Rails has become a standard to which even<br>
+ well-established tools are comparing themselves to.”
+ </p>
+ <p><cite>– Martin Fowler, Author of Refactoring, PoEAA, XP Explained</cite></p>
+ </blockquote>
+ <blockquote>
+ <p>
+ “What sets this framework apart from all of the others is the preference for<br>
+ convention over configuration making applications easier<br>
+ to develop and understand.”
+ </p>
+ <p><cite>– Sam Ruby, ASF board of directors</cite></p>
+ </blockquote>
+ <blockquote>
+ <p>
+ “Before Ruby on Rails, web programming required a lot of verbiage, steps and time.<br>
+ Now, web designers and software engineers can develop a website<br>
+ much faster and more simply, enabling them to be more productive<br>
+ and effective in their work.”
+ </p>
+ <p><cite>– Bruce Perens, Open Source Luminary</cite></p>
+ </blockquote>
+ <blockquote>
+ <p>
+ “After researching the market, Ruby on Rails stood out as the best choice.<br>
+ We have been very happy with that decision. We will continue<br>
+ building on Rails and consider it a key business advantage.”
+ </p>
+ <p><cite>– Evan Williams, Creator of Blogger and ODEO</cite></p>
+ </blockquote>
+ <blockquote>
+ <p>
+ “Ruby on Rails is astounding. Using it is like watching a kung-fu movie,<br>
+ where a dozen bad-ass frameworks prepare to beat up the little newcomer<br>
+ only to be handed their asses in a variety of imaginative ways.”
+ </p>
+ <p><cite>– Nathan Torkington, O'Reilly Program Chair for OSCON</cite></p>
+ </blockquote>
+ <blockquote>
+ <p>
+ “Rails is the killer app for Ruby.”
