I have used both RVM and rbenv, they're both good. I have spent multiple days debugging a problem with RVM, which hasn't happened to me (yet) with rbenv. Currently using rbenv.

@passthejoe the real question is MRI vs jruby vs truffle ruby.

@bcgoss @passthejoe jRuby has a number of benefits; I've used it at work where they're into Tomcat, so they could just deploy as normal. Plus you get parallelism -- maybe; the problem is that your dependencies were probably not designed with that in mind.
