How does the .NET stack stack up with alternatives?

The judges recently made a comment that they were surprised that so many of the contestants were using a .NET stack instead of something newer like Ruby on Rails.

I inferred, quite possibly incorrectly, that what was being suggested was that RoR and other newer technologies were somehow better suited for developing Web-based applications.

What do you think about .NET usage for developing state of the art web-based applications that are capable of quickly scaling and evolving to meet intended stakeholder needs?  Also, what do you think about some of the emerging development tools and where and why they warrant serious consideration?
