I recently purchased a new computer and had to get Ruby on Rails installed on it. Up to this point I’ve been using my wife’s Macbook for ROR development on weekends. It was time to make the jump to a dedicated environment that didn’t interfere with the Facebook cravings of the wife.
Instead of just diving blindly into setting it up I tapped the knowledge of one of the guys I know who works at Engine Yard and worked on Windows.
Update: I have now installed Karmic Koala in Virtualbox in Windows 7 and the process is exactly the same.
