Some (but not all) of the points mentioned were:

* RDE is a Windows-only IDE
* Eclipse is a huge download
* Although ActiveState's Komodo IDE has some support
   for Ruby syntax in its editor, they haven't really
   made any firm commitment to more Ruby support at this time.

And as I pointed out during Rich's presentation, the use of Emacs would 
be in direct conflict with one of their other goals: "Does Not Suck".

Hope this helps,
