I’ve recently started a project and I wanted to give ruby 1.9 + rails
a chance. Well everything works great, so far haven’t encountered any
gem that didn’t work (so anyone out there you should give it a try).
There’s only one minor glitch: on ruby 1.8.7 loading rails environment
takes 1-2 secs, on 1.9.1 it takes ~10 secs. Maybe anyone had similar
problem? I’m on ubuntu 9.10 and I compiled ruby from source (as I’ve
noticed it works ~20% faster than apt version).
