Ruby and RoR Setup Frustrations

Have you tried to use JRuby?

I'm sure you're not going to have any of these problems on Windows.

You could start by avoiding Ruby 1.9 that is a development version and
not really that supported.

I also doubt that you're going to deploy to a Ruby 1.9 environment.

Pre-packaged version?

JRuby is just a pure ruby interpreter writen in Java that is faster
than the current 1.8 branch and is almost as fast as 1.9. And IDEs
shoudn't really care about which Ruby version you're using, at least
NetBeans and RubyMine don't, maybe it's time for you to change your
tools.

JRuby also has a compatibility mode to run as if it was a Ruby 1.9
interpreter, you should research and use it before making your mind.

Thanks! Looks good - reading it now.

It's not an IDE, but I really like the 'e' text editor for ruby/rails development on windows. Google for 'e text editor' & you'll find it. It's a textmate clone (or started out that way anyway).

HTH,
