The Quick Start Edition is available only in English.

Alternative environments

The instructions for these labs are based on IBM Streams Quick Start Edition (QSE). However, you aren’t required to use the QSE VMware image. You can install and run the lab in any other environment with a current Streams installation.

If you don’t use the QSE, some components might look different, depending on how closely your environment matches the QSE virtual machine setup described above.

Additionally, your environment might not have the launcher that is used to start the different tools used in these labs.
