Mojo is not about dispatching at all, Mojolicious is just an example of whats possible with Mojo. The web is a moving target, things need to move forward, bi-directional HTTP is happening. What Mojo provides is a replacement for the ancient and RFC ignoring modules Catalyst was built upon, we are ready for Comet and WebSocket for example.

I actually asked the Catalyst developers to join the Mojo project and be the first framework to use it, they couldn't make a decision. But i needed a good example framework fast, so Mojolicious was born and i'm exploring new techniques with it now...

Nothing in Mojo will keep you from using Moose, want to build Moose on Rails? Just do it! Mojo is plain old OO Perl, no more no less.

    I don't know anything about Comet or WebSocket, and the mojolicious homepage doesn't target these sales points at all. In conclusion is not targeting me -- the early adopter type who *already* uses an mvc framework that he is fairly happy with, not to say I couldn't be more happy with Mojolicious. Instead you're doing what everyone is still doing by trying to target the dwindling audience of PHP users. That's what I see as the fault here. Your homepage is not noticeably different from any other mvc framework with generators.
    No offense, lets examine my thought process as I traverse through your features:
    * Full stack HTTP 1.1 client/server implementation (nothing new. s +ales point in 2003). * Builtin async io and prefork servers (cough?? explain.). * CGI and FastCGI support (nothing new. Catalyst too). * Code generators (Catalyst too. expired sales point in 2003). * Very clean object oriented API (Catalyst too. subjective). * Pure Perl (at best a moot point) without any hidden magic (which + is what everyone claims). * Example MVC web framework (Catalst, Maypole, Jifty et al?) named + Mojolicious (the name has no bearing) (aka. Perl on Rails).

    I hack for the ladies.
      Then show what you would do different! I somehow doubt i could win the hearts of the "early adopter type" with a simple website, thats where i'm counting on blog articles and viral marketing. (which works even better than i expected so far) I don't think there is anything wrong with trying to get PHP users into the Perl world.
