I'm constantly reinstalling my OS, not because I have problems with it, but because i'm constantly trying something new.
Remembering all the packages I needed to quickly get up and running was a pain. So awhile back, David made a script to easily install everything. A couple of things changed since then so I've updated it for anyone that is interested.
Its simple just copy this into a terminal.
curl -#L http://goo.gl/7bcjb | bash
I recommend that you always be skeptical of bash scripts that are downloaded off the tubes so feel free to look at it before you install.
It will install a bunch of packages, rvm, and ruby 2.
This should work on anything that supports apt.
