Setting up RVM on Ubuntu was something of a challenge the first couple of times I did it and it put me off encouraging my peers to use it. These days, there are now installers for Windows, Mac, Ubuntu and more that make it really easy to get started with. While the Ubuntu package would make a purist very upset, the user experience is very much improved.

This is a cool idea!  If it was easy to spin up common types of
buildslaves in vagrant, or with public EC2 AMIs, or even ESX apps,
that would probably help people get test systems up anr running
