Hello Community, my first post, and I hope its in the correct group.

I work a lot with SQL Server SSIS/SSAS and PowerBI, and lesser so with the Oracle equivalents. I'm looking to build a lab environment that is all open source, and use Linux, Pentaho w/ various Plug-ins, and PostgreSQL as an answer to expensive engineered solutions as SQL Server and Oracle BI products.

I have looked at the chart of the Pentaho CE and EE, and it would appear that the EE server level would have the services for thing like minting a cube. So that would mean I would acquire an Linux Server OS. Does Pentaho have a Developers edition of the EE through a special program? Or can CE be made to function in a more crippled manner?
