I've just been handed a windows computer, after 3-4 years solely on Macintosh. I'd like to use DSS. From this post @KAB
I see you have experimented with WSL2. After 9 months, from your point of view, is WSL2 a viable configuration for DSS?

What have you ended up using for:

  • Your Base Linux
  • Have you installed a Postgres SQL database
  • Are you having any challenges with your Windows Antivirus and workstation firewall components?
  • How much memory do you have on the system? and is it enough?
  • How are you installing software like Python?, Unix Package Manager, Anaconda, or something else
  • Have you been able to upgrade to DSS 9.x?

    @fchataigner2 ,

    I see you have also done some work with WSL2. I'm wondering your current thoughts on use of WSL2 and Dataiku DSS.

    Hi @tgb417
    ,

    The only thing that I am aware that WSL1 is definitely not suitable for DSS. We had quite many issues with that. WSL2 is more stable but not stable enough for our official support.
