Issue #4738 has been updated by Lazaridis Ilias.


Mr. Bosslet, you are the only person which is trolling here, because of your off-topic comment. Remember: you're commenting on a issue-tracking-system, which should strictly focus on the issue at hand.

I've validly updated the information (within the issue I had filed months ago), after I was contacted by a user who was confused and didn't know how to finally solve the issue (in context of a rails installation on a greek windows machine). There's no need to add further misleading off-topic comments.

As for Mr. Matsumoto: He's not the first designer (Ruby is not an invention, it's a design) who get's lost in the complexity he has created, trying to implement the (partially contrary) requirements he's specified. That's nothing special - except for dumb religious language fanatics of your kind, who think that language designers are gods.
