I'm just getting started with Python and would like to play around with geodatabase management via Arcpy - however I will be running the code primarily on Linux.

Do I need to have an ArcGIS product installed/authorized on the same machine (e.g. ArcGIS Server 10.1 for Linux) in order to use Arcpy, or can I just install the site-package by copying it from my ArcGIS Desktop Windows installation to my Linux Python 2.7 installation, for example?  Are there any license restrictions with using Arcpy in this way?

Any info would be appreciated.
