I use a low end laptop as my daily driver running a WSL Ubuntu-20.04 as my platform of choice. When trying to run the plutus-playground it often crashes. Should I try using Ubuntu or any other Linux boot for the development or will I get a similar experience there too.

1 Answer 1


WSL is a hack for running Linux programs. Plutus Playground is very stable once it is installed on a stable platform. I had hosted a playground without any issue for more than a month that too without restart. It is highly recommended that Ubuntu or other Linux OS be used as a base platform than Windows.

  • Ubuntu is far better, just tried running plutus on it :chef_kiss:. Sep 11, 2021 at 7:43
