Setting up for Rails development on Windows

Came across a road block while setting up for rails development on windows: rvm doesn’t work!

I usually do rails work on windows only when I’m required to use windows 7 (as opposed to osx when working with windows-only software for clients). Rather than try to deal with other gem workarounds, I’ve decided to install an ubuntu virtualbox on my windows environment.

Right now I’m following along with the guide on:

Eventually I want to set up a dedicated partition so that I could access the same server from both windows and osx, but I’ll wait until I am more familiar with ubuntu administration first, as I’ve not actually administered an ubuntu machine before and am not sure how much space I’ll want to give the ubuntu partition.
