Thin is a Ruby web server that glues together 3 of the best Ruby
libraries in web history:
* the Mongrel parser, the root of Mongrel's speed and security
* Event Machine, a network I/O library with extremely high
scalability, performance and stability
* Rack, a minimal interface between webservers and Ruby frameworks
Which makes it, with all humility, the most secure, stable, fast and
extensible Ruby web server bundled in an easy to use package for your own
