I'm fairly new to the licensing structure Microsoft implemented for their Windows Server 2016 Standard and Datacenter editions.
So far I've understood that the difference between Standard and Datacenter is the number of Hyper-V hosts (OSEs) allowed to run on it. What I've been unable to determine if this only applies to Windows based operating systems or if this includes any operating system like Linux.
What I want to do is run a Windows Server 2016 Standard host with more than 2 Linux hosts. Would this mean I would have to buy a Datacenter edition instead of Standard edition because I have more than 2 hosts or would it be fine because the hosts aren't Windows (10/Server 2016)?
