As far as OS are concerned:

1/ Windows:

In my case windows 8.1 with classic shell work like a charm I don't know about 10 I don't  usually install adwares on purpose on my computers  ^-^.
I think I tried 7 once but I dont remember running any utilities, with 8.1 I run war2, observer and insight all at once with a batch file and it works pretty good out of the box.
(I also tried pudbrowser and map editor for science and it  also works fine)

2/ Linux:

I dont know how linux handles wine nowadays
I usually dont use linux for playing myself but it might be worth looking for that too.
I heard it is pretty stable one good thing about it is you get to try that for free and if it does not work well you haven't lost much.
As far as linux distros are concerned Id go for Mint or Manjaro if its a first time linux thing they are userfriendly and quite popular.
Also for graphic cards if you are going to run on linux you will want to get a Nvidia with the proprietary driver they are better supported.

Also I cant tell about the various utilities obviously if anyone runs linux they might have more insight  than me no puns intended ;)

3/ M.....Nope just kidding there is no 3 (:

Well as you said we don't really care that much about disc space anymore, disc space is cheap I am pretty sure everyone would be fine having the complete install knowing that they also can launch that campaign thing if one day they feel like it right away they install the game once and voilĂ  they are basically done they have everything ready to go out of the box so to speak. 8)

Also if you think a dialog box is cool still we need to make sure that it is not too intrusive that once the game install works properly it wont show up anymore so that you don't run into it every-time you exit the game ;-)

So basically if you do that in a batch file you can check just after starting war2 if you need to wait for it to end or not based on if the user said he was fine with the install or not by reading some saved data from a file. :-)

Here is one idea that is not automatic but might be a little more user-friendly than what we have at the moment.
We could ask the user directly if the install worked after his first launch and try the different settings for him if it didn't until we find the right one or we run out of options in which case we prompt him to ask on the discord/forum for help.

For example it could be something like this when you run the batch file:
Step 1:
Runs the game with default settings.
Step 2:
When you close the game, if you have not yet approved you will be asked if everything worked properly.
Step 3:
Checking the user's feedback
-> if yes, we save in a file the current configuration and we do not ask the user again next time he closes the game (we don't even have to wait for him to close it).
-> if it didn't work out, then we proceed to the next configuration and try running the game again and repeat step 1 until it works or we are out of options
If all installations configs failed we prompt the user to ask for help on the forum or better the discord.
I guess that could be a suitable way to handle the issue.

I think the same for the game files overall I think if it has all the musics and sounds and cinematics/campaigns it might help more people coming back as they wont feel like the game is broken or something's missing. Even though I guess most of us don't actually play with the music on and certainly barely ever play the campaign, when people come back they are more nostalgic and they might want to play the campaign first before they play online just to get themselves back on track, plus they wont end up in someone's game rediscovering everything while being cursed at.

Hope this helps  :)

And thats how you make people hate linux for no reason.
On linux to run old windows executables you will need to install Wine.
There is a step by step here: http://en.war2.ru/tutorials/setting-up-linux-ubuntu-to-play-warcraft-ii-bne/
Mint is derivated from ubuntu therefore you should be able to do these steps :-)


To join discord you can install discord app from here:
