Castle IoC conteiners (MicroKernel and Windsor) are a good foundation to make the pieces of a system easier to connect and reconnect (just by configuration).

Active Record support is very well implemented, and helpfull, and most of its limitations comes from the NHibernate implementation it uses as the persistence mapper, but to be really fair it is not possible for NH, or any other ORM, to solve all the problems from trying to bridge between the relational model and the object one.

Also MonoRail (that offers MVC), really helps with some though problems in Web development, but it is surely not for everyone, as it lacks better UI designing tools, specially for the more commonly used NVelocity-based view engine.

The project is evolving, and lots of interesting things are being added, to further reduce the work to develop and to maintain enterprise systems, but the concepts and the details are hard to grasp if you come from RAD-inflicted shops.
