That's what's wonderful about Ruby, but that doesn't mean it doesn't 
need an IDE.  IDE is not about 'boilerplate code'.  It's about easy of 
coding, viewing, and debugging code.

Again, this has nothing to do with an IDE.

And again...  Just because it's easier to write Ruby code does not mean 
we don't need an IDE.

I can write any language I know on a whiteboard.  That doesn't mean I 
don't need an IDE to be most productive.

On a side note, Quanta's voting system has an item for Ruby code 
completion that was just confirmed.  Anyone interested might want to add 
their weight to it.  A link for those who care:
