IME it's pretty painful, in particular if you have programs which use 
Strings, and you want to understand how they work in ruby 1.9. Here's my 
attempt:

Personally I find that ruby 1.9 is a very different and painful 
language, so I stick with 1.8. YMMV.

If you are going to 1.9 then also check that all the gems/libraries you 
use work with 1.9.
