Operating System: Linux
To use it, just download, burn and reboot! Or if you have a virtualization or emulation engine like Qemu, Parallels or VMWare it is even easier.
Many people are curious about Ruby on Rails but don't want to go through the pain of installing it locally. The Rails Live CD solves this problem by allowing you to have a fully operating Ruby on Rails development environment without even touching your hard drive!
Others are interested in developing Ruby on Rails applications in Linux but don't have the skills or the patience to do the installation and compiling required to get Ruby on Rails running on a typical Linux installation.
Rails Live CD allows you to install directly to your hard drive and walks you through the process. No compiling or ./configure ./make ./make install dancing required.
