I don't know much about the sqladapter gem and how to get it working on
Linux (what dependencies, libraries are needed, etc.), but I had a similar
situation where I needed to store my data in an SQL Server backend. In my
case, I used TorqueBox (a nice JBoss-based Rails server running on JRuby),
which included the JDBC drivers for SQL Server (made using SQL Server
super, super easy). By using JRuby (Java) instead of the native Ruby, it
didn't matter which platform I used for development, staging, or
production; my environment and dependencies were the same regardless of OS.
As far as the actual deployment process, I would seriously consider using
Capistrano; I would think it would be possible to use Capistrano on Windows
with Cygwin or something similar to deploy to Linux.

Whether its possible to deploy my app to Linux? If yes, how hard would
