I think they address (some) of this in the video but a lot of the Steam AAA scene is looking pretty good! But people (including many from the Linux community) also demanded an end to the Steam monopoly. Like a tropey RPG, big business in the industry was more than wiling to make a deal for that but in the end they only created more fragmented game stores with far less focus on Linux compatibility than Steam. “nearly half of the top streamed games on Twitch are not available on Steam.”I'm hopeful that the Steam Deck is finally going to force game developers to fix these issues with their games not working properly under Linux.
If not, it's going to become the world's weirdest Windows 11 handheld
"Ubuntu? That distro is for noobs! They should be targeting Fedora/Mint/Gentoo/(Insert your favorite distro) instead!"I didn't watch any of the videos, but I don't see why devs can't just target ubuntu. call that the supported platform, and what's required for the game. Users can hack on it for other systems. If it works on ubuntu, it'll work on anything. Just a matter of putting the time in.
I'd like to see them target Red Hat, Debian, Suse. One of the main distros should allow an easier time moving support downstream - debian to mint or ubuntu rather than ubuntu to mint."Ubuntu? That distro is for noobs! They should be targeting Fedora/Mint/Gentoo/(Insert your favorite distro) instead!"
