Windows or Linux?

Hi Guys,

Would love to know peoples thoughts on linux vs windows as I’ve been told linux is a lot better for a server environment? if you could recommend a linux version what would be the most suitable for running InvoicePlane?

thank you guys!

Oooh. You are opening up a real can of worms here.

My own opinion is that Linux is better, It is more robust and flexible, and you have more options available to you. Having said that, I am not too familiar with Windows servers,

I suggest you install Linux and give it a try, If there is any particular question you have you can always ask here.


@leeboulton definitely a can of worms, focus on Linux server.
Do you want to host invoiceplane on a server in your office?
Think of this option:
a server on, let’s say, Digital Ocean.
an address, say,
that way you do not need that server in your office, the server is hosted somewhere safe and your employees can access it from anywhere

I knew I was opening a can of worms but this needs to be said as windows server edition costs a fortune, and yes to access InvoicePlane on the same network via other laptops and pcs :slight_smile:

  1. install docker on a PC
  2. docker will give you a linux setup
  3. docker will serve you the invoiceplane site
    That way you don’t need a windows server
