So I gotta ask, why only CentOS?

I'm running SP on Mint with no issues.


Sadly it's not entirely by choice that we just support centOS for the launcher. We have encountered several technical issues when we tried to support other linux distribution
At some point we had to make the difficult decision to just improve the quality on CentOS, Windows and Mac and leave behind, for some time, the other OS
As you may experience there are still some small bugs/issues on the launcher and our top priority is to resolve most of them ;)
