Have searched without success. Is therr a min System requirement to run FO on a Windows notebook?

Am I correct in stating one must eith be running a Windows machine Or a Linux box? There is not a version that would run on android.

Should FO run properly on a Windows 10 Intel Celeron CPU, 4GB RAM, 500GB HD with a10 screen?

TIA.

- Gene

There is no carefully maintained / test-based official minimum, other than (as far as I know) at least WinXP with OpenGL 2.0 support. Turn processing time and UI responsiveness will be better on better systems, particularly for larger galaxies and with more rendering options enabled.

Also OSX and some Linux-like operating systems, possibly including BSD and Chrome.

Not sure what an "a10" screen is, but it likely depends more on the graphics chip / card than the monitor specs. "Celeren CPU" is very non-specific, but FreeOrion can be CPU limited for some things, so that might limit in-game performance.

Thanks a lot. Of particular are the video requirements re: OpenGL 2.0 or greater.
