In the user documentation, Ubuntu is not listed under the "Best" hardware solution, only windows. Is there a reason for this?

I ask is because we currently have 45 active displays running on Chromebox that are scattered around the country, and it is going to be a big (expensive) task to eventually migrate back to a supported operating system.  My concern is about whether or not there will be continued support for Ubuntu (our ideal solution) moving forward as we plan to deploy another 50+ systems, and convert ~175 older systems to a risevision platform in the future.

 We would like to feel more confident about the future of these new deployments over the next several years.

Hi Alex,

Ubuntu 14.04 is a fully supported operating system for Rise Player. The matrix you're looking at is strictly hardware recommendations, the i5 NUC is not available with Ubuntu at this time.

That's correct Wendi, we do indeed have that i5 Nuc. Sorry for the confusion!
