Honestly this is a general question for the Ruby community. I'd be
interested if we have any stats on current usage. My guess is that
this will slant towards high adoption of 1.8.6 for Windows users
specifically as some guides mention still recommend this approach. The
new Ruby Installer may not have the presence yet that the old one
click installer had and there is a large installed base there. Luis,
feel free to jump in and correct me if that doesn't hold true.
