Re: Installing Odoo on ubuntu desktop is suitable for production?

- 29/10/2023 14:21:22

I would discourage using a desktop environment on any web server, Odoo or not.
it would introduce a lot of unnecessary dependencies, disk usage, and daemons.
More dependencies would also mean a potentially less secure system, just because there is more attack surface.

Is there any specific reason you would prefer Ubuntu desktop?

Dear contributors,

It would be really helpful to me if you can give me an hint on this.

I premise I have very low experience with odoo maintenance as I'm generally engaged with developement area. 

I mantain a couple of very simple instances with ubuntu server but I need to build and be active in the mantainance process of a more complex instance, with e-Commerce logic involved. 

It's been an year I work on server version and I got used to it pretty much, despite that I wonder if it's really worth to lose GUI feature to save some resources for an Odoo instance, so I am considering dropping server version in favour of desktop.

In the logic of an Odoo server mantainer is this crazy or fairly acceptable?
