Re: Is Plone for Windows 2008 R2 or for Linux only?
Many people run Plone in production on Windows - voluntarily or not.
There is no documentation that recommends NOT USING Plone on Windows.
The choice of the OS depends often on IT constraints....never give a Linux System into hands of Windows-only and vice versa.
Hi, all I can find in the documentation is that Windows is for testing things in Plone out. Am I correct that production environments are Linux only? Thanks.
You're definitely best off using the Windows installer — unless you need to develop C-language additions. ONLY if you need to develop C-language extensions on Windows will you need to create your own Visual Studio or MingGW environment.
Plone is nearly exclusively written in Python. The underlying Zope app server has some components written in C. The windows installer includes binary versions of those.
