Re: [PhillyOnRails] OS X Tiger


This is the one I've used on both my developer machines and the Mac mini
running the production Clickable Bliss website.

It's served me great.

One of the benefits of DP is that it has a nice way to do upgrades and even
downgrades (much like gem). I never really like its MySQL package, I think
the one off of MySQL.com works best. Not sure how good/bad the other rails
related packages work through DP.

I've heard of people doing so without issue, but there is not wide spread
use of it to date. Personally I've stuck with 4.1 since I don't use the
advanced stuff in 5 (yet anyways). The reward/risk just wasn't there.

Not that I have any status in the group, but the more talk the better. Ask
what ever you want.
