    Default HM on Linux

    Hello,

    has HM become in any way compatible with Linux (e.g. Ubuntu 16.04)? Or do I have to buy Windows 10 only to be able to play some poker?

    Cheers

    We do not support Linux. You would need a VM + windows.

    That's a good idea I haven't thought of. Big thanks, I'll look into it :P

    I like Oracle's VirtualBox. It's easy to use and free.

    Is it like Wine? Can I do use HM and OM on Linux Mint cinnamon with that? Is it difficult to config. it?

    Wine is a totally different concept and HM will not run under wine.

    In a Virtualbox VM you create a virtual windows machine (you need a windows license!) where all programs like the pokerclients, postgresql and HM are installed.
    You just install virtualbox under Linux (www.virtualbox.org) and then you setup a windows system in Virtualbox.
