using Ruby with windows

I've downloaded Instant Rails (Ruby on Rails), which is a development environment for Ruby in a windows setting. So far it has worked really well. Nice not to have to fuss with dual boot issues. And it comes with PHP and MySql in a nice all-in-one package.

Found this little gotcha in that if you are in windows, chances are good something already has port 80 taken. Edit your config to use another port. I have IIS already, so I had to change ports. Here is a blog post on this topic.
