Ruby on Rails on Linux

Being a Windows developer by day, it’s been interesting installing RoR on my Linux workstation.  Granted, it didn’t take a long time (and I love a good technical challenge) but launching a terminal and using a combination of “apt-get” and “wget” to download and install packages was very different from my usual experience of downloading an executable and simply clicking on it to install.  I could see how this be a turnoff to a diehard Windows developer.

Fortunately, there were a ton of resources on how to install RoR on Linux (Jaunty) that made things go pretty straightforward.  Now its off to working through a sample application – we’ll see how that goes.

If anyone knows of any good RoR resources, drop me a line.
