Have got Discourse running on my 2013 Apple MBP on VB fine (thanks so much for the guide), but MY GOODNESS: it’s slow (but always gets there in the end )
So I was thinking - rather than upgrading my laptop (perhaps to an overpriced 2017 MBP and putting up with its AWFUL KEYBOARD ), what about keeping my old MBP and instead buying a Rock64 SBC (with 4GB - more memory than my Production cloud server), installing Debian and running that as my local Discourse dev server?
Thoughts? Anyone tried this?
