+ - What is the best web platform to learn? 2

Submitted by
GeekBoy writes "I've been doing Linux and KDE programming for the last few years, however, lately I've been thinking about learning web application programming, AJAX, the whole bit. I have done limited web programming in PERL-CGI about 7 years ago, but I realize that things have changed drastically since then. I was looking at Ruby on Rails, but after seeing this post by an apparently prominent rails developer I'm not so sure... So I'm wondering if the Slashdot community can recommend a platform. My end goal is to write a large web application I've been thinking about for a while so it needs to be stable, scalable and secure."
