It appears Yehuda Katz is on a mission to do just that.

He has undertaken an ambitious project to [re]simplify Rails on OSX. And I applaud him (I also pledged some money to support the project).

I have been involved with Ruby-on-Rails since about 2007 and feel a similar frustration with the changes (albeit they are enhancements) it has experienced. I believe there is a very, very large majority of RoR developers on OSX (as compared to "the other" OSes).

What is YOUR opinion on the subject?
