    As Python certainly is the older language with a broader audience, there is no ‘kill’ web application framework. There are a number of frameworks, depending upon what you want and need.

    Quixote, CherryPy, Cheetah, Paste, Twisted/Nevow, Django, TurboGears and so on.

    And before you complain about the pain of choosing the right one -> you surely do not want to imply that Ruby On Rails is right for all web applications, be it an embedded web app in some appliance, or a huge site with more than 1000 hits per second, right?
