Nope. we don't support Unix. I doubt there's enough people using a PDP-10 left to warrant the effort.
I forked real life and now I'm getting merge conflicts.

Oh, I see, you're referring to the couple of people who don't know what flavor of Unix-like system they're using, or are using a Unix-like system which doesn't fall into one of the other categories. Maybe they're using FreeBSD or soemthing.

What is interesting is that only 50% are using Windows, and 50% are using a Unix-like system of some sort. Of those, most are using a Linux-based system since only 15% (of the total) are on Apple of some sort. So, it's 50% Windows, 35% Linux, and 15% BSD.

Does BfW 1.14 even run on Windows 7? Not that I'd ever object to people installing Linux, but it's not for everyone.

Gentoo, but my first contact with Wesnoth was on an OpenSUSE Live CD. I also played it on Windows Vista, but now Gentoo is my main OS and I use a Windows 7 32 Bit VM (Qemu/KVM) only for certain applications, like my tax declaration software and some legacy games.

macOS 10.11 or Win10,Sometimes it's Win 7(For stability).
In the current Apple situation, I am not sure if I will buy a new Apple system in the future. I have no plans to upgrade Apple too.

Usually I use Window$ 7 to play Wesnoth, because I'm not good at using GNU/Linux.
Window$ 8 is also not bad, but for me, Window$ 7 is better.
I hate Window$ 10 and I will never use it!
As for GNU/Linux, I may use Trisquel or PureOS to play wesnoth.
If wesnoth has .AppImage files, I can play wesnoth everywhere where has a computer. Because I usually use portable GNU/Linux Operating Systems on USB flash disks when I need to use someone else's computer.
Playing wesnoth on Android is also good, I even wrote a tutorial to teach Chinese players how to install wesnoth on Android.
