Majority of IronRuby developers will be using Ironruby for web designing 
purpose, and working with Asp.Net MVC with IronRuby, a good IDE like VS 
Express is a must.

For a plain Ruby development even "Scite" and "Netbeans 6.1" are the 
best choice around. Even NotePad can solve that problem, but its hardly 

But when it comes to Asp.Net MVC with IronRuby, one cannot survive 
without a great IDE, thats sure.
