Operating system (OS)

Hello everyone!

I am new to coding/programming... I was wondering if there is such thing as best Operating system (OS) for Rust Development. If not, which one normally the professionals use?

Thank you so much!

I have used Linux for the past couple of decades. For me, personally, Linux is the best OS for Rust development. Everything just works. I occasionally have to do Rust development on Windows, and I struggle a lot. But that is just because I am not familiar with the Windows development environment.

My understanding is that the three major OSs (Windows, Linux, MacOS) have great support for the Rust language and for the tools you need to develop software using it (IDEs, version control, etc.). They just do things slightly differently.
That being said, my opinion is that the best OS for you is the one you feel most comfortable with.


Not really. Get comfortable reading and writing code and reading feedback from the compiler and reading documentation.

At first, keep using the OS you're used to.
