NetBeans 6.0 Great Ruby IDE

Finally found some time to play around with Ruby on Rails on NetBeans 6.0 beta 2 very late last night. I downloaded the Ruby specific version since I still need to use 5.5.1 for work. All I can say is wow! You get a complete Rails development environment (except for the database) in a 20 meg download. Everything runs fast and loads fast. I had the Hello World! app created and running in about 5 minutes. Very impressive. In the past, I have run into a number of roadblocks just getting rails setup, especially on OS X. If you have been itching to learn Rails, this is the tool you need to start with.
