If you're responsible for configuration and maintenance, use what you're familiar with :-)

Otherwise, it depends on how/where you're deploying -- bare metal, VPS, Docker containers -- and personal preference. particularly on package management.

For instance, Alpine Linux is a very small image, good for containers.

The Amazon Linux AMI is RedHat-based -- if you like RPM/yum as a package manager and use AWS, perfect.

Ubuntu uses the Debian package management system, and there's a lot of documentation/examples available.

And then there's all the BSD- and Solaris-derived options. I vote for trying them all :-)

Is it possible to run Ruby and Rails on Mac OS X off of a local folder (without local or system install using RVM, Homebrew, etc.)

Similar to the way one can copy/paste Java installation directory and just run off of it with no dependencies, I'd like to do the same with Ruby/Rails.

The goal is to be able to connect a USB drive to someone's Mac OS X, open terminal, and demo an application (execute "rails server" from the mounted USB drive) without having to install/compile anything.

I want to know if there is a way to some settings to be used by framework services such as ActivityManagerService of WindowManagerService like apps can do with preferences. They should be able to store some of their variables into some persistent storage and read them at bootup.

Currently, I found only the xml files in res/res folder but this is editable only at compile time.
