Quote from minjIt is just a personal thing. I'd like to have it ingame so I would not need to worry about two things running. It supposedly switches to ingame music when you open up the menu and you can't have it on linux.
Yes, you are right about content. I tried the promods mod btw and it is great to have a lot more countries but it has some sort of texture rendering issues on my machine. A general linux problem perhaps?
The whole point is to have linux treated equally and not as some sort of a bastard child. We all pay for the game just the same.
I agree with Xpander here, getting music to work isn´t that important here. But you got a point though that Linux users should be able to use the same functions as Windows or Mac users. Did you know that you can disable the in-game music in options? I did and I use Spotify in the background, works great. Except that I got the same problems as M.C., fps drops in between. But it´s the same in Windows too.
Btw the promods scandinavian mod is quite better then the original map. The Going east part is better though, but not as good as promods. I also got the texture problem when running it on Linux though, I think the problem is that it´s only tested and supported on directX.
