Running AtomOS on your system is as easy as downloading the ISO image and booting your selected server or computer off that image directly or burning it to a USB drive.
Installing a valid license is as easy as copying on the burned image a license file.
A Community copy of AtomOS contains the whole codebase to become easily an Enterprise copy. You'll just need to add a license file downloaded from our portal or our tools and restart the system services belonging to Elemento.
A copy of AtomOS which runs off an expired Enterprise license will simply start working as a Community edition copy, therefore with all the limitations deriving from that.
Yes, but our codebase requires you to share such edits with the same community we are sharing the original codebase with, and in particular through the same tools (e.g. GitHub). Any modified code belongs to our company and we are entitled to use such improvements in future release without further notice (quoting the original author!).
We tested AtomOS almost on any modern hardware.
That means AMD and Intel consumer, HEDT and server CPUs and even some ARM server processors.
While we are confident it will run on any RHEL-supported hardware, we cannot ensure it will run flawlessly on any hardware you might throw at it.
In case you want to be safe and get a real plug&play experience you might consider getting a Orbital system.
