Thread: Bloomber Terminal

  1. #1

    Default Bloomber Terminal

    Hi,

    Has anyone managed to install a Bloomberg Terminal on Opensuse 12.1? Is it possible to do so, using Wine? I am interested in accessing the Bloomberg API to retrieve data.

    Any insight would be appreciated.

    Regards

    Sounds like a Bloomberg Terminal is more than some communications program ...

    The Bloomberg Terminal is the de facto standard machine for any professional working in finance. And it doesn't come cheap, costing about $1,600 per month.
    I found an interesting article here you can read: Build Your Own Bloomberg-Killer | PCWorld Business Center

    So what exactly part of a Bloomberg Terminal are you trying to use openSUSE for?

    So you know openSUSE works great with Oracle's VirtualBox working with 32 bit versions of Windows 7, Vista and XP as I have all of them working on my openSUSE PC. I am not sure just what application you are looking for to run under openSUSE. If you have a subscription, what software does it requires to be used?
