I am new to grails and have been using the SpringSource Eclipse interface version 2.9.2 along with Grails 2.1 and have successfully been going through the Scott Davis Blogito tutorial.
I would now like to begin to develop web sites using this environment and will need a get a dedicated machine for this – currently I am doing my work on a PC running windows which grinds a way a bit! I am looking for guidance regarding a suitable development platform.
If I continue to do development under windows what level of processor have people worked with successfully? I appreciate this is a bit of a “length of string” question.
One last thought before I take the plunge – should I consider the Unix option. As I am familiar with using Unix scripting are there benefits to doing my development on a Unix box over a windows box?
