I know another Mac-owning Rubyist who swore by the use of an IDE because 
of its ability to show and search project files.

I, a non-Mac owning Rubyist, prefer gvim and some shells, but there are 
some IDEs (Netbeans, for example) that are extremely handy for various 
tasks, including learning Ruby.
