ruby development

I haven't begun learning ruby yet, soon though. I currently develop
web apps using eclipse on linux. I'm looking for a new platform to
develop in that will support ruby on rails along with other web
languages (ajax etc) on linux. what do you guys recommend?

Rails _is_ a platform.

By "platform" do you mean an IDE? an Integrated Development Environment?

This is the "what editor?" FAQ, so Google for "editor Rails". One of the answers will be Radrails, which is Eclipse + (IIRC) RDT. Just plug that in and keep going with Eclipse!

that's what i meant, thanks...new web guy here. i'm a PSU CSE student
and until recently have only worked with c++.

radraills.org seems to be down atm. i checked faq and saw scribes is
close to textmate on mac. i really like how clean and small it is.
