Ah, thanks. Now I understand why I couldn't find it - the information
is in a completely different place from that for the other platforms,
and not linked in any meaningful way from the NS website front page.
I have two Linux machines in the house, both of which run Ubuntu 14.04
32 bit. I don't believe either of them is 64 bit capable. Oh well...
Given a Linux host, is it necessary or desirable to create a separate
VM for NS development?
