      Exclamation Which Linux do you use?

      Let Goldhawk know which Linux distros you want them to support for the game.

      If other - post which one!

      Can I ask a question? Does Fedora count as Red Hat or shall I choose Other? I personally don't understand why are CentOS / Red Hat (which are seldom used as desktop distros) in the poll and Fedora (which is intended for home use) is not.

      Hi Alm,

      I'd probably count Fedora as Red Hat, although it's possible we might want to tweak the poll options later on (not many people use Debian as a desktop either; at least, not sensible people).

      I'd ask about Gentoo but I don't know if Xenonauts will support -funroll-loops

      Well if they were truly sensible people they wouldn't be using Arch either.

      I use Arch

      In my experience with linux development, linux distributions are similar enough to ignore their differences, unless the game relies heavily on desktop environment specific stuff. Usually you only need to think about a specific distribution when coding except for packaging, and you can always release a distribution-agnostic binary.

      Debian on my linux box. But it doesn't have a screen, a keyboard nor a mouse. Just power and network plugged in.

      All of the options are just the Linux's I have experience working with. They also happen to be (IMO) the most common, whether people are using them as a desktop or not.

      Debian GNU/Linux.

      Also I'd like to add, that I would prefer a real native solution to a wrapper, if that is possible somehow. (e.g. by contacting the Playground SDK people and asking whether they would be willing to participate in porting the code or to contract out a port or to give you the source code for doing the port)

      Well, lets count Fedora (and its derivatives) as Red Hat. Although I think the release should be distributive-independent.

      I would also prefer a native solution, but after a quick search at the Playground forums they don't seem interested on creating a Linux port. Asking anyways wouldn't hurt, though
