Hey GuidedHacking community,

I'm new here and would like to start contributing to the scene, however I currently own a Mac and would need to Bootcamp over to Windows.

My question is this: Which Windows platform would be the best to use for contributing to the RE community? (XP, 10, x64, x86, etc.)

I want the contributions I make to be compatible with the majority of users.

Thanks everyone!

Windows XP or Windows 7, doesn't matter x64 or x86.

XP has restricted libraries like old version of DirectX and .net 3.5. So maybe stick with windows 7 and up.
Also develop on a 64bit machine just because its faster, whilst application release builds should be targeted at x86 for cross compatibility.
Maybe i'm wrong though.

I have 16Gb of RAM so x64 is preferred. :p

I've decided to go with Windows 7 x64, thanks for the info guys.
