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 7 Installation document.

If you have View Agent 6.1.1 or later, or Horizon Agent 7.0 or later, 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 Setting Up Horizon 6 for Linux Desktops or Setting Up Horizon 7 for Linux Desktops document.
