@passthejoe Fedora's rubygems package is nice since they patched it to install gems into ~/.gem/ for normal users, so you don't have to run `sudo gem install` for all gems.
@postmodern I never know if I'm supposed to do 'sudo gem install' or just 'gem install'. Do they go to the same place, or does sudoing put it somewhere else?
@passthejoe check `sudo gem env` vs `gem env`. Installing a gem via sudo causes it to go into /usr/local/share/gems (which is global), where as non-sudo gem install goes into ~/.gem/ (which is local to the user).
@passthejoe bundler is excellent and every professional ruby job I have had relies on it extensively.
@passthejoe bundler is for when you need to isolate and lock down the gem dependencies of an app or library.
