So, apparently it is now possible to install the Ruby and Rails stack on Ubuntu using one command.
While I haven’t tried it out yet, it seems to hold great promise to get solve some/most of the setup problems associated with the Ruby and Ruby on Rails Stack. I remember it took me a LONG time to setup on my machine for various reasons. While I eventually solved all the problems using a combination of my search foo and my friend Sam Liu, a lot of potential ‘Railers’ might be scared away. Overall, I thought it was a great learning experience, but a lot of people might not agree with that.
I might be doing a clean install of Ubuntu sometime soon(I’m currently using Wubi) and will definitely try to install the Rails stack using this command.
