Jruby good deployment VM for windows(!)

As a note, appears from the stories of Jruby [1] that you can actually
use it as a nice stable rails deployment VM--on windows. That's right.
It has acceptable speed on windows. Wowza.

Yes, in fact there should be no major performance difference on Windows compared to any other platform, because Hotspot (OpenJDK, Sun's JVM, etc) has had Windows as a supported platform for years and years. JRuby may arguably be the best Ruby for Windows users as a result.

Matching MRI's Windows behavior has led to a couple peculiarities, however, so we're always looking for Windows users to help us smooth out the rough spots. Usually the problems involve pathing (e.g. Dir globbing and friends) and shouldn't affect Rails deployments. We'd also love to have a cmd/bat expert take a look at our startup scripts :slight_smile:
