Topic: Getting rid of windows - Maybe: Mac or Linux (Ubuntu, or other..) ???
I have noticed most code examples are derived from a Mac or linux box. I am a windows user, and have had several issues trying to get my development stuff to work. Overall it's all worked fine, but it seems I have to try harder to get things to work. In addition I don't really want to spend the money to buy a Mac until I can justify the expense.
Right now I'm trying to decided if I want to make a second partition on my computer and either create a MacHack, or install Ubuntu. I have used ubuntu in the past but got irritated with the amount of time it would take to do simple tasks like setup a wireless connections. I'm not sure if a MacHack on a PC would give me the results I want either. I'm trying to save cost, and would like to develop my first ROR app without purchasing a new computer. Any advice is welcome. I know most mac users love their machines, but they are expensive buggers too. I'm not sure if I would admit dislike once I spent that much money either.
