As long as you have a Windows operating system installed. 🙂


Seriously though, here are the requirements from the download page...

Windows 10 , Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2

      Microsoft Power BI Desktop requires Internet Explorer 9 or greater.

    Microsoft Power BI Desktop is available for 32-bit (x86) and 64-bit (x64) platforms.


That is the Desktop requirements. In theory, you could use Excel with the Power plug-ins if they exist. There is an app for iOS and Android but not full functionality. Safari *should* work with the Service. (haven't tried)
