Why not use rvm? Is rbenv better for Mac?

I used rvm to install and manage Ruby versions on my Mac. Has rbenv advantages over rvm?

Hi Carsten,

There is a great post on this http://jonathan-jackson.net/rvm-and-rbenv

I personally use rvm, because of it's simplicity( and the nice one-liners ), but you really can use either one.

Hope you find your answer!
