The main difference is you will certainly get with you you laptop (to meet a customer, by example) and the other 4 persons can't access to it at that time. The best way is to install it on desktop or on server in the desk or chose a saas solution. If you want installed on windows desktop/server the link is here:

Server is, very likely, going to be on Linux. The process is quite well documented here.
