What is the best Linux distro for Wine?

Post by Gerold » Wed Mar 27, 2019 8:18 am

At the moment I am using Linux Mint 19.1 “Tessa” Cinnamon 64-Bit.

Is there a Linux distro where Wine runs better or best with?

No, there is no "best" distro for Wine, but there are problematic distros. Avoid CentOS/RHEL/Scientific Linux, as the libraries in version 6 are too old for many of Wine's features and version 7 lacks 32 bit support altogether. I would also avoid small/niche distros, as they are not likely to have much of a community of Wine users to help with any problems and no one here will know anything about them.

Ok. Thanks

So I think I can continue to use Linux Mint 19.x 64-Bit

I tought my problems with Wine are maybe related with this distro.
