Topic: What is the best Mac OS for Rails Development?

I am looking for a specific version here, like Leopard, Snow Leopard, Lion, Mountain Lion, etc.  Maybe even which update within a version, like 10.8.2.  I am only interested in Mac OS's, not uBuntu or Windows, thanks.

I've been trying to setup RoR on my Mac Mini 10.8 and am having a ton of issues.  So I am going to buy a cheap Macbook and will install whatever OS is best for develpment.

I don't know that there's been a comprehensive comparison of MacOS's for RoR development. I'm working on MacOS Lion 10.7.5, myself. I've heard of problems a few people had with Mountain Lion and RoR, but I don't recall any specific details.

I work on the most up to date mac os x - using the terminal and text mate - i have had no issues whatsoever

Same for me: up to date MBAir and no issues at all.  Maybe your issues could be fixed instead?

I wiped my SSD and did a fresh install, also setting up a separate dev profile.  Everything seems to be great now on 10.8.3.
