    Ruby - GUI - Desktop Programming - Tools required

    I dabbled in Ruby quite a while ago but only at the console level. I didn't take it any further at the time. I'm now considering treating it more seriously this time, though I'd have to start from the start.

    My understanding is that Ruby is a cross-platform development language. What I'm wanting to do is develop desktop GUI applications using Ruby. My primary operating system is Windows Vista. Applications will be database front ends and in that regard I'm comfortable with MySql.

    What are the preferred/best combination of toolsets required to develop cross-platform (Windows, Linux & Mac) GUI applications. By toolsets I mean, editors GUI packages etc.

    ps. I'm aware of RoR but the thrust of this thread is desktop GUI programming.
