Would appreciate any feedback on suitability of using raspberry Pi4 for Kstars development. Is performance sufficient for a beginner getting into code development of Kstars or will it be too slow compiling?

It's pretty slow when doing a full build. Incremental builds when doing development don't usually take too long.

Better would be a desktop computer preferably running Linux. Yes, KStars can be built under Windows (or MacOS). I've done it that way before, but building under Windows is a pain.

Thanks for confirming what I suspected. My windows 10 desktop isn't suitable for Windows 11 now which indicates how old it is so it's time I think to replace the mother board and buy a new SDD drive then build a dual boot system. May I ask, what is the most suitable distribution of Linux for Kstars?

Ubuntu is what KStars is mostly developed on (but also built for other distros).
