Ruby Ruby Foundations Ruby Basics Installing Ruby

RBENV VS RVM

An earlier video had me installing RBENV, which required me to implode the version of RVM I had. The video 'Ruby Basics' has me installing RVM again. Will this not cause trouble?

you should use the one you like best. its only used for the very beginning of the course I imagine. after you install ruby you probably wont mess with it again. I like RVM better than rbenv, so i prefer to use that. just pick the one you like best . since you already have rbenv installed you could just use that and not have to worry about uninstalling that and installing RVM again etc
