Jaunty, Karmic, or Lucid???

I want to set up Ruby on Rails development environment on my windows laptop at work, and plan to set up Virtual Box and install some version of linux, probably ubuntu, as a guest OS. I use windows mostly for work and OS X at home, but havent done much with linux (my office's production environment is linux, so I do a tiny bit). Which version of ubuntu should I go with right now? I see "Lucid Lynx" has just been released (I love the naming), should I go with that or a previous recent version?

Rails/Java XML-RPC Filter

Railsfilter: I need to write an addition to an already-existing Rails app to allow it to accept large files (and some trivial metadata) uploaded from a Processing (Java) client I've written. The Rails app already supports this behavior via a web interface. I can see a few of the trees, how do I fit them into the forest and get a pair of working apps? [more inside]

If MeFi was on rails, it wouldn't be hosted here.

Textdrive seems to be a good hosting company for my Ruby code, but I'm rather put off by their no dev/tinkering sandboxing policy. Any alternate suggestions?
