May I know if SAP BW BEx is able to run under Linux, preferrably, Fedora Core 5 (kernel: 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5) with SAPGUI for Java 6.40 rev 6.11 on Java VM: Sun Microsystems Inc. Version 1.4.2_09-b05.
From what we had learn from our consultants, SAP BW BEx can only work with Microsoft Excel, where one can insert or delete columns which means it has to be run under Microsoft Windows; however, we have more than 30 sets of SAP clients running under Fedora Core 5 with OpenOffice.org 2.0.
Therefore, before implementing SAP BW, I would like to make sure if we have to invest new OS and Office Suite.
Any clue would be highly appreciated, thank you.
