[openstack-dev] [Nova] Could you tell me the best way to develop openstack in Windows?

I agree.  It is a lot easier to just develop on a Linux environment. You
could set-up a Linux VM using VirtualBox or VMware tools to do this on
Windows. You would then be aligned with tools and documentation in the
community and hence better able to get up and running.

In my experience, when developing software which runs primarily on
Linux it's a lot more complicated to attempt to test it on non-Linux
systems than it is to learn to use Linux instead (at least in a
virtual machine somewhere). Similarly, I would not expect to be able
to comfortably develop software under Linux when it's intended to
mostly run on Microsoft Windows or Apple Macintosh.

I personally just use Linux as my development platform. I gather
some in our community prefer to use Mac or Win systems but I think
in most cases they end up augmenting their development workflow with
Linux virtual machines (either local or at a remote service
