Rails 2.0: Release Candidate 1

We're almost there. Really this time.

For those that have already dabbled with 2.0, some questions for you...

I've justed started to dig into Ruby & Rails, on & off for a a few weeks now (but have been doing web apps for many years). I figure I may as well start using 2.0 now if it's mostly the same as 1.2 and using AWDWR & blogs about 1.2 won't lead me astray. Opinions on that?

So, the main question is whether I should update my existing installation (OS X 10.4), or should I just gut 1.2, and install 2.0 from scratch. Is uninstalling Rails a hassle? I don't mind the effort needed to start over (it won't take very long at all to move the little work I've done so far in a my "crash dummy" app) if it provides a cleaner 2.0-specific starting point.

I know it's up to my prefc (which is to go for a clean install), but if updating really makes that unnecessary, then I'll try that first.

Mostly I'm wondering whether using AWDR as my guide will be problematic.

It's just a bunch of gems. You can uninstall all the existing rails
gems if you feel like it but there's really not a lot of point to that.
