Rails and windows

Hi everyone,

I’ve heard it said that developing Rails apps in Windows is an overall
disaster experience. I’ve done a few basic examples, scaffolding and
such, and have had no problems so far. So, what is the reason for this
general feeling?

Just 'cause it’s slow in starting up each time.
You can avoid that with the faster_require gem, though, and use of the
spork gem.
There are a few other minor differences, like you sometimes have to read
files as “rb” instead of “r” mode, but they’re not impossible.
