If you're reading this guide then you're probably new to Ruby/Rails, so also included is more general beginner advice to help you get going.

Looking to prove a point as a challenge, I ignored this strongly given advice while learning Ruby/Rails. While I eventually did succeed in getting Ruby on Rails to work in Windows, it was not easy, and I easily lost 40+ hours on StackOverFlow to Windows/Ruby configuration issues--time I could have devoted to learning more about th
