Has anyone considered moving from PHP to Ruby on Rails?

I was not planning on jumping ship just yet, but a few years down the line when I am more advanced with Ruby & Rails I might.
In the last year or so I have really pushed PHP to the limits and have noticed its limitations. For example, multi-threading (forking) is barely achievable in PHP, running PHP scripts as daemons is possible on some *nix distros, but not for a production environment, the list goes on. Apparently Ruby & Rails can do these things and more out of the box (well with a few gem libraries). The more I am referring too is very impressive stuff, for example deploying to a cluster, easy and simple, it just works. It just seems so well designed, I am sure it has its bad points too - just like any language.
It just seems so advanced compared to PHP, I know Zend Framework (especially the latest release v1.8) does a lot, including CLI for generating projects & Model,View,Controller (MVC) files.
