Weird - thanks Eric for clarifying.

Not that I have any intention of ever using these versions but …

RDi support SUSE, RedHat, and Ubuntu for the client in addition to various

If you click on the system requirements tab from
http://www-03.ibm.com/software/products/en/dev-ibm-i and select Client it
will list the operating systems (including various Linux). I'm not sure
why it is not showing Linux on the initial tab. I will look into that.

Thanks,

Yes they can - but Red Hat and SUSE enterprise editions only.

However I?m not sure the current release does run on Linux - the only
version that this IBM web page
http://www-03.ibm.com/software/products/en/dev-ibm-i shows for Linux is
version 8.5. The indication appears to be that 9.0 and 9.1 only run on
windows.

Maybe one of the IBMers on this list could comment on that.

Can they already use Linux? Just curious as I almost exclusively use
Linux (Debian Jessie/Xfce) at home and run a couple of KVM/QEMU virtual
PC's to run programs that have no Linux alternative, or do but not with
the specific capabilities I require.


Hopefully that policy will apply in Canada too and perhaps increase the
chances that we will finally get a native Mac implementation of RDi.
