I’m running a Ubuntu 8.04 server at work that uses Ruby 1.87 as our
interpreter of choice. Our hardware isn’t exactly top notch, so Ruby
Enterprise Edition has quite the allure for us – especially with the
release of their 1.87 compatible version yesterday.
Has anyone attempted to transition to REE from a package installed copy
Ruby 1.87 yet? If so, how well did it work for you? What sort of effort
involved in getting your system back up and running? Did you have to
re-install any gems?
