Our server is a Linux Suse machine. For the BIM Server I've had to use one of our Windows based computers. Does anyone know if there is a way to set it up on the Linux server? (preferably a hassle free, non compromising way)

Thanks

The only supported method is with the specifications listed for the product.

But, perhaps Wine would support it? If so, don't know if that would result in much of a performance hit?

You can buy a decent bare Windows box (do not need graphics - just good processor and fast memory) for under $500. Seems a more reasonable solution for reliability... On the Mac side, a Mac Mini is a good option for a small network.
