    Hi,
    I tried to search for an answer in the previous treads but I couldn't find what I'm looking for.
    I started with IM two months ago and I made good money on fiverr using my own bot. Now I was thinking to sell bots but I need to know what language do you prefer.
    I mean, do you prefer using bot on your computer or on a vps? And do you want them cross-platform or windows only?
    I usually program with python and that have some good advantages (fast and cross-platform) but I saw that almost 90% of all bots that are here are made with .NET, so they are windows only.
    The question is: Does make a bot cross-platform really improve sells? And, do you usually run bots on your pc or on a vps?

    Thanks

    Well the majority of users are windows users. Maybe there are some Mac OS users, but even them can emulate an windows environment. So that's why you see so many .net bots. Anyway I really like python, and I urge you to continue coding in that language.

    I would run bots on a vps, target windows users and make it in C# (most people use windows anyways and you can get windows VPSs cheap)

    I personally thing that SaaS is the fbest bet even in terms of SEO/SMO related software..

    Desktop apps are pretty much on the way out IMO. People want browser based apps that they can use anywhere even on the go.

    Most users no longer have interest in babysitting desktop software.
