    Both make sense. It depends on your experience / desire to try something new.

    Personally, if given a blank sheet of paper I think I'd go with R on R simply as it requires less coding. However, if time was a factor I'd go for PHP as I am experienced with it already.

    Also hosting is a factor - not all hosts yet support R / R on R.

    20k + users. 5-10 Million nodes.

    What makes sense in terms of scalability?

    I'd use PHP personally - but thats just because I love PHP and from experience know it can handle large-scale apps, and is very flexible/scalable.

    Go with Ruby on Rails. RoR is built for scalability, those 'slow benchmarks' don't really mean anything to RoR especially since that stuff was going around a couple years ago during it's infancy. It's just getting stronger and stronger, and I'm betting it's heading towards the direction of becoming a dominant player more so than php.

    DHH ( The creator of Rails ) posted about scalablitiy on his blog which might interest you, ( full post here) :

    Any language can scale if the site is designed properly.

    get the best of both worlds (MVC + PHP) by using FUSE: http://www.phpfuse.net :)

    Would have thought that they have decided by now given the post was over a year ago
