Gem question

When I go to install sqlite3-ruby on Windows XP, I am faced with a list
of version numbers and version types (mswin or rb):

Select which gem to install for your platform (i386-mswin32)
1. sqlite3-ruby 1.1.0 (mswin32)
2. sqlite3-ruby 1.1.0 (ruby)
3. sqlite3-ruby 1.0.1 (mswin32)
4. sqlite3-ruby 1.0.1 (ruby)
5. sqlite3-ruby 1.0.0 (ruby)
6. sqlite3-ruby 1.0.0 (mswin32)
7. sqlite3-ruby 0.9.0 (mswin32)
8. sqlite3-ruby 0.9.0 (ruby)
9. sqlite3-ruby 0.6.0 (ruby)
10. sqlite3-ruby 0.5.0 (ruby)
11. Cancel installation

I am guessing that the ruby ones are just that "pure" ruby and the
mswin32 ones are platform specific (maybe compiled?).

Which should I choose?

You can think of that as mswin32=Windows, ruby=Everything but Windows. The mswin32 releases often have precompiled binaries.

Unless you have reason to do otherwise, go with the highest rev number. If you're on Windows, 1.1.0 (mswin32).
