English [Auto] To follow up on the last video if you are interested in using our V.M. and you want to know how to install different versions of Ruby it's pretty easy so if i do our VM will list this is going to show me everything that's installed now pretend that I did not have to point to three which that's the most recent version or a recent stable version of Ruby. All I would have to do is type in rpm install to point to three and that would do it. So it doesn't have anything to install because it says already installed to re-install do the re-install command but it's perfectly fine on my system so there's no reason for me to do that. But if you didn't have your system in it but you had our VM it would install that so that's as easy it is as it is. If you are wondering about what versions are available if you switch back and go to the main ruby lang page and click on download Ruby. Scroll down just a little bit and it will show you what the most current stable version is and you can see right here it's ruby two point two three. The previous one before that was 2.1 7. Switching back the terminal you can see I have both of those versions. I also have a few other ones in between that I was testing out for the production applications I usually like to stick with the stable versions just to make sure I don't run into any big bugs so that's how you install different versions of Ruby on a Mac or Linux system.
