I remember the good old days when developers actual told their users what the problem was when there was an error. Now they just either do nothing or show "Something happened" and leave the poor user trying to find out what's going on via Google with fuck all idea of what to look for.

Agreed on IIS although Web deploy takes no more time than building it locally but I wouldn't run SQL Server locally unless it's a small DB. What I'm getting at is that I have never had any problems with crashes while developing on Windows so I'm just surprised to hear of such bad experiences. Don't peg me as a Microsoft fanboy; I might work with their stuff but I curse them daily.

You could run it on a separate server or a few separate servers instead of consuming the resources of several dev machines. SQL Server isn't exactly lightweight and you're running other RAM intensive processes by the sounds of things.

I use Windows in a Parallels VM and in 4GB (or GiB who the fuck cares) I run Chrome and I with several tabs, Outlook, Word, 3 or 4 instances of VS2013 and all sorts of other miscellaneous stuff and don't have any problems with crashing. What hardware are you running your Windows on?
