Try JRuby on Windows

I just created a nice tutorial for installing JRuby on Windows. JRuby is great because it combines the power and features of Java, with the strength and elegance of Ruby! JRuby can also run Ruby on Rails, and is very nicely integrated with Java, giving you access to Java excellent resources, such as Swing.

If you find yourself with this exception error:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: java/lang/Enum

Then you probably need a higher version of Java installed. Check someplace like C:/Program Files/Java/ to see what versions you have, and make sure you have (I think) at least 1.5.something. Make sure JAVA_HOME points to that one!
