System requirements

MetaEdit+ is designed to be platform independent and thus follows the principles of open systems to work on all major platforms. Full platform independence is supported for both the environment and the data. Currently MetaEdit+ clients and servers are available on the following platforms:

Platform Operating System
Windows (screenshot) Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7, Vista; Server 2012, 2008, 2003
Linux (screenshot) x86, 2.4 kernel, 2.2 glibc, e.g. Ubuntu 14.04, 12.04
For a 64-bit Linux, install 32bit/i386 libraries
Mac OS X (screenshot) Intel or PowerPC, 10.5 or later

The suggested hardware is Intel Core i5 2.8GHz for all platforms; minimum is any Intel Pentium. The installed program requires around 70Mb of hard disk space and uses a similar amount of memory when running.

For multi-user access to the repository, the MetaEdit+ server and clients should be connected via a network with LAN latency and supporting file sharing and socket communications. The MetaEdit+ server requires around 20Mb of memory and its typical CPU load averages a few percent.
