OS is operating system, most likely Windows XP...

Maybe give a 2.0.5b a try? (in the Releases and Versions forum)

Well, when most people don't know their OS (or what it stands for) they just bought a computer and figure it's the only thing out there, all there is is Windows. Just like the "Blue E" is the Internet to some.

I'm not being mean, I'm just catering to the normal, non-geek person. Please, no one take offense.

CVS:

basically a place to download the code of bzflag, it is updated more often the realeased builds of the game.

(you must build it yourself)

Therefore, you'll need Linux, and / or a (expensive ?) software from Microsoft.

You can also use Dev-C++ or Microsoft's Free Visual C++ Express (I am not sure if BZFlag supports the latter, though).
