I don't know enough to say whether I'm 'more experienced' than anyone
else on the list, but I would like to say that I've been happy
programming my rails site in [JEdit][]. With the directory tree on the
left and the Ruby highlighting, the IDE is completed!

However, I just downloaded [RadRails][] and must say that the built-in
support for Rails (File > New > Controller), database management, and
WEBrick server management are calling for me to make a switch. I have
not used it extensively enough for a full review, though--just enough
to say that it's worth a look.
