@Pummelchen said in NodeBB wont start, Windows:
Setup complexity is pretty much the same on each platforms if you know what you are doing.
The problem is complexity is defined by how much you need to know to know what you are doing, and tasks like this on Windows generally require you to know more making it more complex. On Linux it is trivial to follow a guide or script that will do all of the work for you.
This example shows how close we get to a one liner to install it on Linux. Can you do something similar on Windows? Maybe, but the effort to do so isn't "so easy that we write it up regularly whenever we do it because it's that easy."
No "Linux" knowledge really even needed. Just fire it up, copy the commands, and done. Just acquiring the software on Windows is a bit more complex.
