Having never used Ruby-on-Rails, I was wondering if you
could give a quick run-down. What kind of footprint does
it have (I use mostly Win XP at work and Linux at home).
Headquarters IT/Security dept. has been very picky lately
about what we load on our systems.
I've previously decided to forgo other interesting tools
because they wanted an entire development environment to
live in/on, and not the one that is supported for our developers.
