I did all of these while watching the final game of FIFA WorldCup, and my Linux virtual machine works perfectly on top of Windows 7 in my AMD 64x2 laptop.
Here is what I did for my development box ;-)
- I upgraded my VirtualBox to the latest version. Just realized that they changed the name of maker/provider from Sun to Oracle.
- I upgraded my Ubuntu to 10.04 Lucid Lynx. Yes, I really like their new user interface...very nice!
- I installed the latest version of Rails, and few gems that I am using such as Authlogic and Faker.
- I re-installed Komodo Editor 5 for my main editor for Rails. I like this editor better than gEdit for Rails project, and it really has been working great because Komodo Editor itself supports Rails folder structures. I added few key mappings for my needs to current profile as well.
(settings in my preference)
Ok, everything seems to work fine for all of my projects in this new DEV box.
I revisited my web hosting account at RailsPlayground to install a couple of web-based applications under my domain too.
Rails has been a great web framework for my development needs (personal projects) especially for all kinds of database-driven web application in Linux, while I work as a .net/C# software engineer at my work.
I just want to thank everyone who's been working so hard to provide us such a great tool, framework, and utility...
