[Rubyinstaller-devel] Wiki: Gem lists and misleading details

I noticed a couple of this on the wiki page:
"7/22/09 Mongodb-mongo 0.9 1.3.4 4.3.3 WinXP Prof OK built via TDM-GCC"
MongoDB does not need a compiler to be installed.
C:\Users\Luis\Projects\oss\rubyspec>gem spec mongodb-mongo extensions
Even so, stating "built via TDM-GCC" is misleading, since there is no
compilation or build process involved.
MongoDB ruby adapter is a Pure-Ruby solution that connects to MongoDB
Adding those details raises some eyebrows since you are automatically
bumping the complexity of the end-user experience and the steps they
will need to take care prior installing something.
So avoid stating a compiler was required or which one was used when
there is no need for a compiler.
Perfection in design is achieved not when there is nothing more to add,
but rather when there is nothing more to take away.
