I agree that tar is a good, safe choice given your dilemma and caters well to the Linux users.
It only adds the extra step for the user to untar the file first, which technically ought not be a problem for the user.
As a courtesy, you could include a readme in the tar with tips for installation. For example, tips from your
Linux thread or whatever.

As for what I prefer, I work in Linux and Windows, which helped the times I encountered zip files that don’t open well except in Windows (I don’t recall why, but it was explained to me at the time).
And many Linux users avoid Windows, so…I’d say you’ve found your answer.

And thank you for your quick answer.
