Hi, I am about to switch RAD Studio development to virtualization system. I have a few fast machines with Windows 10 PRO. I am researching between VMWare Workstation PRO and Hyper-V. I do not mind to pay something extra for VMWare. I would like to know from developers who are using the virtualization every day for development and not just for testing or occasional hobby development. I am specifically interested in RAD Studio performance on both systems. Kind regards
I'm about to update to 10.4, having waited while EMB QA once again failed and we had to wait for them to remove bugs that should never have shipped. (Yes, I'm bitter about that, but that's a discussion to have another day.) Rather than continuing to suffer from EBM releases that are defective, I'm going to for the first time develop on VMWare VM. This will of course allow me to easily roll back to a previous release. One reason I haven't done this in the past is that I have never been clear about how much I should install in the VM itself, and how much should remain on my host machine. If I put my source code (which is regularly backed up from the host to a repository) in the VM, then it seems that so many of my other tools also have to be in the VM, like my grep tools, and other utilities (like Beyond Compare, CI tools), etc. I don't know the best place to draw the line on what goes where. Perhaps I should leave my source on the host drive, accessing it from the VM? This is less than ideal, because my archives would have two pieces (the VM, and the source on C:). And it also means that I'll have to remove all of the hardwired C:\ paths in my scripts and other tools. To people using VMs for product development: how much do you install in your VM? Does your VM access your host drive for anything? Any suggestions?
