Using VM's for cross platform development



  • Hello,
    I was inspired by this post. Seeing how many people are using VM's for development it got me really intrested. I'm currently using dual boot windows 10 and ubuntu 16.04. My main focus is embedded linux and stm32 development.
    What OS do you use as your main?
    How does your VM setup works?
    What VM software are you using?
    Are there any problems when using VM for app development?
    Does app deployment to embedded linux board becomes any different?
    What about HW resources any problems with that?

    @Eligijus If you already have Ubuntu installed then you do not need a VM.

    What OS do you use as your main? - Linux
    How does your VM setup works? - not needed as I already use Linux :-)
    What VM software are you using? - VMWare
    Are there any problems when using VM for app development? - I don't know any
    Does app deployment to embedded linux board becomes any different? - I don't think so as you're using Linux in your VM, but you could have issues with connecting your device
    What about HW resources any problems with that? - this depends on your hardware
