Up to this point I’ve been creating using the Windows variants of KiCad / FreeCad. At KiCon it seemed that the default for many people were the Linux variants, including tools to load up the really cool conference badge. I think there were some people that had successfully loaded the badge from a Windows tool chain (not sure who they were).
Instead of maintaining a Linux virtual machine for doing things like loading software into my development projects (and to continue to use my business OneDrive folders, etc) I’d like to be able to do cross-platform development (compile C and C++ in something like Visual Studio) for a target like the ARM Cortex-M4 (ATSAM4SD16B) that’s on the KiCon badge.
What are your thoughts/experiences/recommendations?
