Discussion on: IDEA for everything?

Coming from a Java background before switching to ruby, I initially decided to stick with IntelliJ and install the ruby plugins. This works fine if you don't mind some of the UI issues like having to define a JDK/modules for your ruby projects, which doesn't really make sense.

When profiling integration support was released earlier this year in RubyMine, there was a bug in the IntelliJ plugin that didn't expose the run profiler in the command menu, so it couldn't be started. That was just recently fixed, but I decided to switch to the more 'native' RubyMine for ruby development and the interface feels a lot cleaner imo.
