My personal opinion about this is that developing on Windows is not as
hard as it used to be since the Ruby Installer + DevKit have been
released. However, Windows stays Windows, and the thing I personally
most miss in Windows is the #fork method and the ability to create
multi-process programs easily. When Ruby gets rid of the GIL sometime
and Ruby's threads will run truly concurrent, I may not miss it anymore
(Ruby 2.0, maybe?).
Apart from that, I just dislike non-free (free as in freedom) operating
systems ;-)

Vale,
Marvin
