Most recent Linux version

Postby Guardsman Brendo » 28 May 2018, 06:12

I've decided to now dual-boot my system with Windows along Linux(Mint for now). From what I can tell, the Linux versions aren't the most up to date ones, leaving me to use Windows to use the most up to date version. Is this true? I'm just trying to find what I can transfer to Linux.
--As of the above time, this was the last transmission received.

This depends on the distribution of Linux you are using.
Some distributions, like ArchLinux, are reliably up-to-date.
Other distributions, like Ubuntu, usually lag behind. The main reason for this is their long release cycle.

You can install an up-to-date version of Warzone 2100 by following the instructions of our Linux compile guide for versions < 3.3.
