Even though, the latest Ruby installer comes with a built-in web server for development, I skipped ahead and started reading "Four Days on Rails" which suggested using Apache2. I decided to install it as it will probably be the second most web server I will be deploying next to IIS.

Also, MySQL-Front is a great tool for setting and viewing MySQL databases, however after 30 days, it's not free ($35 for 2 licenses). Always striving to hold the banner of Open Source software as high as I can, I found a free (with nagware) alternative in a product called SQLYog. It's very decent and the limitations (so far) are easy to overcome.
