This might sound subjective but I can't help but to post it here in the Stack.
I was really struggling with Magento 2 installation setup.
I am trying to setup a Magento 2 local windows dev environment using some of the latest Magento versions, I used composer version 1.10.x, attempted to install versions starting from 2.3.6 to 2.4.1, but none of them work.
I got stuck. I have done all the best possible options but none of them seem to work in my desktop machine using Windows 10. All I got was bunch of installation errors.
Currently, I am trying to setup a VM using virtualbox with Ubuntu. I hope this will make things easier.
