Re: [education][architecture] Re: [education][architecture] Interest in a GTM Administration and Operations Course after VistA Community Meeting

Yes, GT.M runs only on UNIX/Linux, and is free / open source software
only on Linux. But it's easy to run GT.M on a Linux virtual machine - for
the class, I provide a virtual machine disk image that you can run on any
PC - Linux, Windows, or Mac.
