There are Rails core contributors like Tim Pope (tpope) that uses Linux/Vim too ;)

Btw, tpope is also the author of Rails.vim and other good vim plugins.

And for me the best development platform is Linux of course.

I didn't know that, I shouldnt have used absolutes like that without checking it out. What I should have said is that OSX is home to the majority of the RoR community.

Thats better then rails on Windows, where your best bet for a ruby app server is IIS with FCGI ;-) The big reason everyone loves developing ruby on the mac is due to the killer text editor TextMate, which imo has no match on any other platform.

I have noticed a strong inclination towards MacOSX, TextMate, and very permissive licenses among the new generation of Python based web frameworks, as well. Those traits seem to come as a unit for some reason. Actually, the pattern seems to be to develop on MacOSX and deploy on Ubuntu Linux.

Anyway, while I'm posting, I'll plug my personal favorite web framework:
