Steam are making another attempt to get more linux support.
I recall being excited for an alternative to Windows for ‘mainstream PC gaming’ when Valve first announced this a few years back (along with “Steam Boxes”, which is also not that far from when they announced Steam Link and their own Controller too).
By the time I went looking for something to install Inseem to recall it being dead in the water.
Here’s hoping this build fares better!
This is because Linux is becoming a bigger os than Windows, and in a few years it will be more widely used then windows. That's why this step is taken by steam is for their own benefits.
THIS YEAR is the year of Linux Desktop! It really is this time guys!!!!haha hoggy
yeah i think this is the 20th consecutive year i've been told that linux is going to overtake windows in the server & desktop market 'as soon as next year' or a variation on this. The fact remains that Linux will never become anything other than a specific use case or periphery option. Kinda like Opera browser.
So I installed Mint Linux just to test this and while the Steam Play compatibility with proton worked well enough for a few games, there were mouse input issues and it just wasn’t as working as well in VR, I went back to Windows because everything just works without having to tweak the heck out of it *shrugs*
