  • Installable on Supported Linux platforms;
  • Necessary for a class, for research, or for day-to-day tasks carried out by most of the user community (e.g., Web browsing);
  • Not a potential threat to the security of computing and networking at The University of Iowa;
  • Not duplicative of software that is already installed; and
  • Freely available or properly purchased and licensed software that has been approved through the Technology Review Process
