Recently I've installed Windows 10 on my old notebook to start working on a new server, from compilling to mapping, etc... I had no success, it failed to compile the server (forgottenserver) and the client (otclient). Last night I've used Windows Subsystem for Linux to compile both and it was really easy, and, the most important, it worked! Which operating system do you think it's the best for this occasion? If I choose Ubuntu 18.04, will it be possible to use items editor, remere's map editor and etc... ? What do you guys think about it?

for producing the server: windows
for hosting: linux

enough said
For producing you can use windows + wsl 2 or windows + docker (but performance is worse than native linux performance), it'll be more similiar to real live environment.
For hosting linux + docker would be the best

If you have VT-x/AMD-V enabled in bios, the WSL approach is actually very efficient.

I mean that windows + docker when you shares volumes between windows and docker is worse than linux, windows + wsl is great but I don't recommend this in live environment :) Anyway if you don't share volumes between windows and docker but use golden images with all necessary data it should be also quiet fast.

I've been using Ubuntu 18.04 since this thread was created, it works perfectly! Much easier and faster than Windows 10, I couldn't compile the server (forgottenserver) and the client (otclient) using Windows 10 at all.
