I've just made the exact same trip myself. I picked postgresql and python. When reading this Ruby and Ruby on Rails also look compelling (even took the Rails for Zombies course) but I think I'll stick with what I've got for now. Since I'm a seasoned developer going on my 16th year of c, c++, vb, c# and many others I don't really understand the language wars. It takes but a few days or a week to use a new language... basics are the same and the rest is found online. Many reasons for not choosing c#: - I don't seriously think that MS is promoting open source. Whatever they do it's for "personal" gain (no harm in that though) - c# is meant to run on Windows and while mono works it's not the same - Cheaper hosting for non-MS - Better performance for your money on Linux
