My friends who are starting with Rails usually ask  – how to install rails on “operating system of their choice”? And I end up searching for best tutorial for every operating system and sharing that link.  On a lazy tuesday morning, I decided to collect all the good links  and share it here.  If you think I am missing any OS or a great tutorial, suggest the link. Thanks.

Following the DRY (don’t repeat yourself)  principle, I am just putting the links of best tutorial (in my opinion) for every operating system.
