Yes, although people have successfully run FOG2 Ancients on Linux and WINE, so it will probably run on those. We don't support them directly though.

I'm really curious whether Polish Winged Hussar will be available in the later periods of FOG2: Medieval. It might be an awesome unit (+400 Impact POA, quality: elite, armor: superior, special ability: ignores enemy ZOC ;).

Those are outside the time period of the game I think?

The Medieval Castle: Four Different Types

Within an Existing Roman Fortress
The earliest medieval castles built by the Normans were either constructed within an existing Roman Fort or were Motte and Bailey castles. These were soon replaced by Stone Keep castles as they offered better protection from attack. Concentric castles developed during the 12th and 13th Centuries and were virtually impossible to conquer.

Motte and Bailey Castles
Image

Motte and Bailiey castles were the earliest form of medieval castles built completely from scratch by the Normans. As their name suggests they had two parts the Motte and the Bailey.

The Motte was a large hill made of earth on which was built a wooden keep or lookout. The outer edge was then surrounded with a large wooden fence called a palisade.

The Bailey was separated from the Motte by a wooden bridge that could be removed if the Bailey was occupied by enemies. The Bailey was the part of the castle where people lived and animals were kept. A large castle might have more than one Bailey.

To give added protection to the castle, both the Motte and Bailey would be surrounded by a ditch, sometimes filled with water. A drawbridge was used for access to the castle.

It seems that there is still no anti-aliasing in FoG2: Medieval. Is it possible to add anti-aliasing option in the future?

There is anti-aliasing in FOG2: Medieval (also in FOG2: Ancients). It is off by default to help the game work on older machines, but there are 3 degrees of antialiasing that can be set in the Settings menu.
