Specifically, it only needs a processor, either 32 or 64 bits, and 13 MegaBytes of RAM to function. Amaya OS

This Operating System can be executed both in a virtual machine such as QEMU, VirtualBox or VMWare, through a CD, or a USB (recording with dd) or even by installing it on a hard disk, although so far it does not include a default installer .

    Amaya is a GNU Linux system or is it Unix Like. What are the differences between a GNU Linux system and a Unix Like one?

    As an approximation and short answer, Linux is a kernel where distributions add GUI interfaces and tools (GNU). On the other hand, UNIX * systems usually, and I emphasize the word usually, are a complete operating system. Then there are issues like licenses, costs, and so on.
