I’ve just got back from a meeting with a potential client and, although
I sold Rails to them pretty easily, I kinda put my foot in it at the
last minute when they dropped ‘Oh and a change of plan means it needs to
run on a Windows server’. I’m kicking myself a bit as, instead of
giving an intelligent response, I just rambled a bit about Rails not
being as stable on Windows and for some reason that I still can’t figure

hosting bods - drop me an email and we can discuss costs etc.
Ideally, I’m going to need to present them with a few live applications,
so if anyone has any Rails sites running on windows, I’d appreciate it
