Nginx + Thin/Passenger

Hi guys,

I've tried to set up nginx and thin.

I succeeded in doing so in my Win. But failed in Ubuntu (sometimes...).

I am quite frustrated as I supposed that should be a simple task.

Now I found the passenger.

And it seems to be a great thing to save me.

So, could I ask what is the pros and cons to do with Nginx using thin or
passengers?

And is there anything like thin + passenger + nginx?

Btw, I wanna use sockets instead of ports if it is faster.

Thanks for your opinion or help!
