Re: powerbi(desktop) is only supported for windows?

here are the Minimums thatI could find...  Unfortunately, no mention of other OS Platforms, and I can't find anything either.  However, Microsoft is constantly updating PowerBI, so it may become more open later.  Check out the Ideas section for ideas on PBI running on other platforms and be sure to vote for it.

 

Minimum requirements

  • Windows 7 / Windows Server 2008 R2, or later

  • .NET 4.5

  • Internet Explorer 10 or later

  • Memory (RAM): At least 1 GB available, 1.5 GB or more recommended.

  • Display: At least 1440x900 or 1600x900 (16:9) recommended. Lower resolutions such as 1024x768 or 1280x800 are not recommended, as certain controls (such as closing the startup screen) display beyond those resolutions.

  • CPU: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster x86- or x64-bit processor recommended.

I'm not aware of anything other than Windows which can run IE (they dropped the requirement down to version 9 in January by the way).

Hi @agarcia,

 

   sorry but I don't think that PowerBI can be used on other OS. I think that it's been made only for the Windows based systems.

I think Power BI Desktop was first developed for Windows now, but will reach more platforms.
