        It runs really amazing on Ubuntu 16.10 beta. I couldn't resist to test them together.

        142 FPS max.

          Feral seemed to do really well with this port.

            Everything I'm reading says there is multiplayer, we're just not able to play with Windows. So, Linux <-> Linux and Linux <-> Mac are okay (so I read), but not Linux <-> Windows. Sounds like there's an issue with the multiplayer game engine and the slight calculation differences on multiple platforms.

            Sounds like a good time to finally get my friend to try dual booting Linux!

              Practice makes perfect - lets hope they don't get sick of the bitching before then

                I can see DoW1 being ported without online. But DoW2?! That's pretty far-fetched considering online play is such a huge aspect of the game...

                  It's supported, just can't play with Windows players.

                    Michael The game has a built-in benchmark mode
                    (probably not gonna matter much in phoronix benchmarks, but hey)

                    from above,
                    Linux vs Mac works fine for online play.

                    Which is a "yes" if your question was sarcastic.
