I've been running Ruby on Rails in 2 linux environtments and 2 windows environments and I have not had a memory leak.

I have not however run a webrick server from the RadRails IDE.

Hope that helps.

Strange. I was under the impression that each CGI request handled by webrick (out-of-the-box, sans fastcgi) is forked such that the entire rails framework is initialized and torn down for every request (implicating webrick itself, which would be surprising).

Off topic, but have you seen the new (pre-beta) 'rjs' view template? Pretty neat. It looks like the Ajax fad is here to stay :-)

Well, guess that's always the risk of using a beta tool (ruby on rails) on a beta platform (ruby)..

Makes me wonder why the choice of ruby after your earlier mention about PHP not being the version to be scaled up/robust etc. Why not java? Given the lower risk/more experience/more enterprise ready/more support etc etc

Or was it just because you wanted to play with ruby? :)

I'm interesting in understanding your definition of 'beta'.

"Why not java? Given the lower risk/more experience/more enterprise ready/more support etc etc"

If RoR allows Graham to develop faster, without all the Java overhead, why NOT RoR?

"Or was it just because you wanted to play with ruby? :)"

I can see from that comment that you have probably never given RoR anything other then a cursory glance.
