Many of us Windows users try to have Visual Studio environment.
But that’s not always great option. Unless you are ready to download 8GB
on your internet bandwidth.
I personally like Visual Studio and its fast upcoming cousin
VS Code. But hate the large download part.
Hence an opensource alternative is a need of the hour.
Also if you like to compile
linuxy style code with
Makefile in all its
MinGW64 at your service friend!

It has been long time since I worked on ESP8266 and that too native SDK from Esperssif.
With the rusty know-how and lack on info online, I had a mixed start again.
Hope that the experience shared here might be helpful for many users,
who wish to do ESP8266 native SDK development on Windows Platform.
But are afraid that most of the working tools for ESP8266 are linux friendly.
Not to worry you are in good company.

Working with DietPi, we found going back and forth between
the Raspberry Pi and PC very time consuming.
Fortunately DietPi provides a PC distribution
with x86_x64 configuration.
Though they had both VM Ware and Virtual Box
files but they did not work for us.
So we decided to download the
Native PC for BIOS/CSM (BETA) option.
We later found out this is just a ...
we could not directly use it with Virtual Box

Its common that one needs to use a programmer from the Arduino IDE, but on
Windows 10 things are not as simple. Many times the drivers installed are not
correct hence the
avrdude tool in the Arduino IDE refuses to work.
Now, we have a way to do this programming in Linux as well.
Have a look at my latest article
Programming Arduino Bootloader using Avrdude with AVRISP mkII in Manjaro (Arch Linux)

Some of us like myself do our primary hardware development on Windows PCs. However when it come to writing a Go server or a Rust program we head over to Linux PC.
Most of the development work on a Linux PC is via the terminal. Hence having a good remote terminal is essential. As you can’t always have a VM instances running your Linux. It become difficult over time.
The best is to have either a headless PC or an old Laptop that would act as our Linux box.
