Ruby and Windows Vista
196937 [richard@li s] Is anyone running Ruby on the new Windows Vista beta?
196940 [jschementi@g] I'm running it, it seems to be working fine.  The only gotcha I saw is
196950 [bburd@dr w. ] I got Ruby on Rails running successfully on Vista Beta 2 a few weeks ago. (I had no luck with Beta 1.) Recently my copy of Vista Beta 2 is telling me that the activation (online with Microsoft) isn't working, so now I can't even start up Vista let alone run Ruby on Vista.
