A Horizon administrator creates virtual machines that have a guest operating system and installs agent software in the guest operating system. End users can log in to these virtual machines from a client device.

For a list of the supported Windows guest operating systems, see the Horizon Installation and Upgrade document.

Some Linux guest operating systems are also supported. For information about system requirements, configuring Linux virtual machines, and a list of supported features, see the Linux Desktops and Applications in Horizon document.
