Hi FreeSO enthousiast! FreeSO is a active project supported by our fantastic Rhys! Unfortunatly, developing FreeSO is an heavy task with multiple priorities. Even if Mac and linux systems will be supported in the future you might want to play FreeSO before we figure out a way to deliver your an official and user-friendly build for your favorite operating system. This is why we have this tutorial to explian how to get FreeSO running on Mac or linux using wine. Wine Is Not an Emulator but it can run windows binaries on non-windows systems! The linux part is not ready yet, but, it will be almost the same as the Mac one. FreeSO on Mac with wine In order get things easier, we will use PlayOnMac, a super tool that makes wine easy.
