Which is the best recommended IDE for ROR?

try netbeans. quite stable though.

Aptana does have intellisense like behavior plus all sorts of other things for SVN, CSS, XHTML, etc. etc. It has tools for simplifying all the rails generators and starting up a webBrick or Mongrel development server is as simple as clicking a button. I haven't found it to be buggy and Aptana Studio Community is a no-charge product. I really don't see how you can go wrong to at least give it a try. They have some good video tutorials as well.

Good luck in your search.

ya try net beans... its good but 1 thing i can suggest you... if you use IDE, everything is like spoon feeding and u may not be able to learn ror... try and learn ror.. after some time, shift to IDE...

I 'd vote for aptana as a plugin on eclipse, this gives the flexibility of eclipse and the benefits of radrails. I had problems using apatana and then loading plugins (editors and designers) on top.

The only OS worth working on... OS X :) And the only Editor.... TextMate :)

I am very biased.

Yes Aptana has some refactoring. This link talks a bit about it and points to the current list. http://www.infoq.com/news/2007/11/aptana-studio-10 Aptana also releases updates frequently, constantly adding features or bug fixes. I'm very happy with this IDE.

Yeah, get a mac, get textmate, get happy... that simple

Best Setup Ever! Mac OSX TextMate Terminal
