     8RTEMS applications are developed using cross-development tools running on a
     9host computer, typically your desktop or a special build server. All RTEMS
     10tools and runtime libraries are built from source on your host machine. The
     11RTEMS Project does not maintain binary builds of the tools. This may appear be
     12the opposite to what you normally experience with host operating systems, and
     13it is, however this approach works well. RTEMS is not a host operating system
     14and it is not a distrbution. Providing binary packages for every possible host
     15operating system is to big a task for the RTEMS Project and it is not a good
     16use of the core developers time. Their time is better spent making RTEMS better
     17and faster.

     19Developer Computer
     20------------------
     21
     22The rule for selecting a computer for a developer is `more is better` but we do
     23understand there are limits. Projects set up different configurations and what
     24is described here is not an approved set up, rather it is a guide. Some
     25projects have a suitable development machine per developer while others set up
     26a tightly controlled central build server. RTEMS is flexible and lets you
     27engineering a development environment that suites you. The basic specs are:
     28
     29- Multicore processor
     30- 8G bytes RAM
     31- 256G harddisk
     32
     33RTEMS makes no demands on graphics.
     34
     35Host Software
     36-------------
     37
     38A wide range of host operating systems and hardware can be used. The host
     39operating systems supported are:
     40
     41- Linux
     42- FreeBSD
     43- NetBSD
     44- Apple OS X
     45- Windows
     46- Solaris
     47
     48The functionality on POSIX operating such as Linux and FreeBSD is similar and
     49most features on Windows are supported but you are best to ask on
     50:r:list:`users` if you have a specific question.
     51
     52Install and set up your host operating system. We recommend you maintain your
     53operating system by installing any updates.
