I'm using Eclipse + Pydev on Linux Ubuntu currently, but my hardware is getting old.
Is Apple / Mac OS a good development platform for OpenERP / ODOO? Which setup/environment do you guys use?
I'm also thinking about development on virtual machines (vagrant/virtualbox/docker) since the servers run on Linux Ubuntu. What is the best approach for development and debugging then? Eclipse in a virtual machine has a bad performance I guess. Back to PDB seems not ideal. Remote Debugging from the host to a virtual machine is still not really understandable for me.
What do you think is the best setup? Is Mac even an option? Or is an Ubuntu host with (for example) Docker a better option?
If you want to develop a openerp module, it is recommanded to use a Linux OS (not necessary) to do a good thing.
I recommand you to increase the disk space of your Virtual machine and use eclipse+pydev to develop your module.
Also, i recommand you to install openerp template and xml template to help you : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uS4xICmi1JU

It really depends on your hardware capacity. You need at least 8 GB of RAM to run comfortably with virtual machies for development. I would choose ubuntu as my development machine simply there are more information available but nothing is stopping you to do development with OSX as odoo/openerp is sitting on python 2.7 both Eclipse and Postgres 9.x are available in OSX.
