I use aptana, but it kind of sucks. If I was spending more time coding, I would be using Rubymine.

For those of you turning this into a text editor discussion, you are sorely missing the point. Some of us find lots of comfort in IDE's and no amount of argument is going to change that fact. I grew up doing electrical engineering using heavily integrated tools. Sure there was a learning curve to some of them, but they did so much of the heavy lifting it wasn't even funny.

Some people like IDE's and recommending things like vim and emacs doesn't fit the bill.

I personally use Vim for quick edits and reviewing files; when I switch up to more "sophisticated" tasks (particularly debugging) I enjoy an IDE; I've found that Netbeans with the community Ruby support (https://blogs.oracle.com/geertjan/entry/ruby_in_netbeans_ide_7 and http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5736417/ruby-dropped-in-netbeans-7-how-to-use-it-in-netbeans7) works quite well.

An example of when using the debugger can be quite handy: if you're ever dealing with something like OAuth where there are GETs/POSTs that redirect (e.g. no 'visible' page load), it can be nice to see set a breakpoint and step through as the page load executes to ensure everything is as it seems.

I was asked today if I could recommend a Ruby IDE for Linux. I've never used one (for any OS); has anyone else here?
