It depends what you are doing.
There is quite a bundle of stuff on rubyforge ( http://
rubyforge.org/ ) Most of the modules I use in Perl are centred aroud
databases and web templating, so I'm quite happy with the
ActiveRecord chunk of Rails and for what I do for fun.
If you know the good bits of CPAN well, and use them frequently then
you are liable to think in terms of "I could do this with XXXX from
CPAN in no time", and then start pining for CPAN quickly if some
equivalent is lacking.
