Supported Operating Systems.
Heads up on Distro selection for install
With QuickBox Pro v3 right around the corner (aiming for a New Years release!), it is advised to install QuickBox Pro v2 (the current iteration) on Debian 10. This is the preferred OS of QuickBox as it contains less bloat and offers more performance in regards to the type of Utility and the software that QuickBox is/includes. v3 will only support Debian 9, 10, and 11 (once it's fully supported)
Installing v2 on Ubuntu will result in needing a fresh install should you decide to upgrade to v3. Debian 9 and 10 will be upgraded from v2 to v3, problem free with zero need for a reinstall.

Minimum System Requirements.
This table represents the ideal minimal system resources needed for running the QuickBox Dashboard. This table does not represent what additional applications may require. Please consult those applications own documentation for more specifics on their individual requirements.
modern single core CPU, dual core recommended
Hard disk space:
Ubuntu 18.04/20.04 & Debian 9/10
Virtualization (if VM):
KVM – do not use on OpenVZ
Additional OS image notes:
Of note: The reason we do not support 32-bit (aside from it not being nearly as efficient on system resources as 64) is simply due to our binaries being written and encoded on/for 64-bit arch
Minimal Server Images as they contain basic ssh dependencies required for purely server functionality. No additional apache, mysql, etc dependencies.
ARM is not supported due to a wide range of our approved applications not supporting it either.
Those bootstrapping Linux on Mac Mini can and will encounter a potentially large and wildly varying range of issues.
