Discussion on: Developing like a pro, on Windows

Sure, you can do this with Windows, but are there any real advantages to going through all this setup for things that are preinstalled/much easier to install on linux?

Copy/Paste functionality in the terminal depends on your emulator, if you use termite then it's ctrl+shift+c/ctrl+shift+v to use the normal clipboard.

Personally I don't think I've ever had driver issues on linux but I guess I'm lucky.

Well, in short - yes, it is, because even if these things might take a bit more effort to set up once, everything else just works so much better 🙂
