Linux system requirements

What is Linux?

Linux is a open-source, Unix-like operating system based on the Linux kernel.

Although it does offer Desktop environments that make great client machines, it's the server side where Linux shines the most.

Either on a VM or in a Docker container, you can run Omnis Studio 11's headless Web Server for Linux (x86-64/amd64).

Because Linux distros can come with a variation of system libraries and kernel versions, you might have to install certain dependencies yourself, if the system you choose doesn't come with it out of the box.

This is not hard to do, since your system is likely to have a package manager such as apt or yum, for example executing apt-get install cups in the terminal will install the cups library with the apt-get package manager, usually found on distros such as Debian.
