Actually planning to run it on raspberry Pi finally. Presently running the desktop version of Pi in virtual box. Since it is running on Ubuntu core, so will give it a try. Need to adjust the IP and port forwarding in VBox for WiFi connectivity. I will update the result here.

I have a long term test running at the moment where the server is running on a Pi (an ancient V1 Pi at that). I'm running the server under the Unix build of MicroPython. I haven't tried CPython 3.8 on the Pi but I have tested it on a PC in a Debian VM.

Ok, I will try ( Obviously with some help from you) on Raspibian. It will ensure the cross-platform compatibility. Windows 10 does not seem to be a good platform for this. I have no problem with that as my final target is to run it on Raspibian (which is a debian core, I think). The client is ready, only I need to have a proper platform to run the server.

When the Master developer himself is helping me, I am sure I will be able to make it work. Thanx Peter.

Yes finally it seems running under Raspibian (Raspberry pi desktop running on Virtual box under windows 10) and forwarding the port for wifi connectivity. As per instruction I have installed python 3'8 (original was 3.5, which failed to run). The output I am getting on client is

Everything is on WiFi, connected via home router.
It was really hard for a noob like me to setup initial development environment.
If Peter confirms that the system is working as intended, then I can proceed to the original migration problem.

@Peter, I am starting a new thread with MPU 6050 aspect and will ask lots of stupid questions. :D
I am focusing on the two projects by you, particularly one with the sensor fusion.
