I was wondering if there are developers out there who are doing Rails on
a desktop Linux distribution, and what your essential tools are. A

discussion of your general experience would be great, too.

(Let’s say for the moment that Mac OSX is out of the picture, since I
already have very good non-proprietary hardware.)

I also like Ubuntu, I was a long time Suze/KDE user but recently

switched to Ubuntu/Gnome with little or no difficulties
