I have one question:
You said it'll not run on normal PHP servers because it runs on "Ruby on rails", but how will we be able to use it for our own? Or will new servers be able to run "Ruby on rails"?

rruby on rails is a webframework using the ruby language. so unless your webserver supports ruby (like it supports php), you won't be able to run it.

this might be a quite huge downer for some people. but seeing the recent spread of ruby on rails i'd hope that more and more hosters pick it up.

and if they don't ... it might be a good time to start a ruby & php shared hoster :)

i already thought about starting a forum hosting service based on my software. but

# i don't know how well the board software will be received by the majority of users. it's more like... custom tailored to ... well... a certain group of people.

# there are far more interesting projects out there :)

Hm, that sounds good, perhaps I should try out this service.

Edit: Damn, they currently don't accept new members :(

I tried to learn Ruby but I made the mistake and searched for german tutorial things. There are not as much as I thought :( So I have to learn Ruby with english tutorials, perhaps that trains me in speaking this language :P
