Developing on Windows but really want to get away from developing on Windows...if that makes any sense. I do have to stay in Windows due to other engineering software we have that will only run on this platform.
I am using PyCharm to develop apps to deploy on Linode/Ubuntu.
I am interested in learning if there's a way for me to setup Ubuntu Server on a local VM for development purposes while PyCharm runs under Windows. The alternative would be to run PyCharm under Ubuntu Workstation running on a local VM. The latter would completely unplug me from Windows for Python/Django development (which is what I want) at the cost of some complexity. The former would allow me to simply have the app run under Linux while the IDE runs under Windows. I can easily setup a shared drive between the Ubuntu Server VM and Windows for development purposes.
Is this possible? If so, is there documentation on how to go about setting it up?
