hey
i want to start learning ror
but i dont want to "waste" my money on a ruby host just incase i end up sticking with php
is there a program that lets you tun ror and mysql on a windows xp PC or a linux ubuntu PC?


also, whats so good about ror?
is it faster than PHP?
who here used to be a PHP person, but switched to ROR?
why did you switch?
