Building a Ruby on Rails Development Machine on Windows 7

Building a Ruby on Rails Development Machine on Windows 7

So now that I have a new laptop (see post here, here, and here)  I am going to change my RoR Dev enviroment from Linux to windows.  or atleast I am going to try.

First stop: RailsInstaller.org and pretty much that is all you need.  I like a few more things.

Cygwin- Hint instill using admin rights,

Sublime text 2

Add new SSH Keys to github and bitbucket.

I think I am ready to go…..  Ohhh yeah Coffee!
