    Hello Everyone! I'm a windows10 user wanting to run Orchest locally. I followed the installation steps in the docs (installed minikube then Orchest) and I can see the Orchest interface in my web browser at 127.0.0.1 using the "minikube tunnel" command. But it is extremely slow and unresponsive. It takes minutes to load simple stuff. I have assigned 12 cpus to my minikube cluster. I went through older messages in this channel and using WSL is mentioned for running on Windows. Does anyone have the steps on running Orchest on windows?

    Hi there! For windows it is indeed recommended to use WSL2. After setting up WSL2 you can just follow the regular installation instructions to set up Orchest. @Rick Lamers Have you tried running Orchest on Windows lately?
    Running on 12 cpus is more than enough 😉 I am not familiar enough with how minikube/docker operates on windows to understand why the minikube tunnel command is so slow. I hope (and expect) running on WSL fixes things for you. 🤞

    @Dev Pandya would be happy to help you figure out performance bottlenecks. Can you describe your setup a bit more? Is it Docker for Desktop and minikube with the Docker driver and Windows using an x86_64 processor? (So no WSL/WSL2)?

    I’m taking a look at the Windows performance today. Will post an update here later 🙌

    Thank you for the replies! Yes it is Docker for desktop. I have i9 32gigs ram 64 bit system. I will try it on WSL2 and see if I can make it work.
