An asset is something you use it could be a model or it could be an image. So if I'm going to say model a car my assets could be some car blueprints, some textures I'd saved etcetera.

A lot of people just use the word asset to refer to a model.
All the best

Ubuntu will be fine https://knowledge.autodesk.com/suppo...20-ubuntu.html

I've also run it on Debian and RedHat.

Really almost any distro will do I'd go for ubuntu just as there is a great community for it and you can find lots of help.

All the best
