Performance on Windows Server 2008 R2

“You’ve replied too many times to his topic.” - Really…?

I’m totally fine with a production version. We’d like to use Discourse instead of public forums on our company page, which unfortunately runs on a Virtual Windows server alongside with our Jenkins, Confluence, and stuff.

It’s nice to see it running on my local machine now, but I don’t think that running a VirtualBox with Ubuntu inside our Virtual windows Server would show the performance characteristics we’re looking for…

Are there any plans on making Discourse available in any way on Windows systems? :confused:

Short answer: no.

Long answer: we’re using native gems that are unfortunately not compatible with Windows…

There are already plenty of topics about this subject you might find interesting:

Why is there a topic reply limit for new users?
