Tired of waiting for Rails 3 to start up again and again, I decided to try out Ruby 1.9.3-rc1. To my surprised, Ruby 1.9.3-rc1 works reliably well!
The great part about this is how much faster Rails 3 starts up when using Ruby 1.9.3. Its like night and day.
I am keeping 1.9.2 installed, and thankfully its not too much of a burden since I’m using rbenv (similar to rvm).
Let’s go to the races!
