I googled for which is the best OS elementary OS vs Ubuntu, it's shows me Ubuntu is the suitable OS for development purpose. Is there any flutter developer using elementary OS, please share the experience and difficulties you faced while using elementary OS as development environment. Because i want a stable with light weight and beautiful OS.

Any help much appreciated.

    Did you go through the steps on flutter's get started page (flutter.dev/docs/get-started/install/linux)? All the commands and packages there work great on elementary OS, and I've had no problems with Android Studio (including virtual devices) and IntelliJ IDEA. Also, elementary OS is built on top of Ubuntu.

  • Thank u for your valuable information. I already read the documentation in the flutter website about flutter SDK installation in Linux. As per your experience, I am choosing the elementary OS as my Linux OS. Commented Nov 7, 2019 at 8:37
