The installation instructions say it will run on Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit, which is one of the available options. So there you go.

Additionally, the minimum hardware specs for running a big blue button server are here:

http://docs.bigbluebutton.org/support/faq.html#what-are-the-minimum-hardware-requirements-for-the-bigbluebutton-server

So since you’ll be needing a quad core setup, you’ll have to at least run on a $80/month server…

Additionally, you’ll read in the deeper specs that you have to install it on bare metal:
http://docs.bigbluebutton.org/install/install.html#before-you-install

… so I’m really looking forward to hear from people actually running big blue button…

BBB only works fine on a bare metal server…

I tested it on a KVM VPS with 4 GB Ram but the audio quality with two users only is poor.

I have installed it on a C2 bare metal server from Scaleway (EUR 12/month) and I works great…
