In my view, this is unacceptable…

They changed my background (previously there was a default blue window), placed an icon in the bottom corner of the screen that read “Learn more about this photo”, and re-added the search bar that I had previously removed.

Fortunately, I don’t have to deal with this on a daily basis.

      Ive been 100% linux since 2016, and while there are some pain points, the games that work, work amazingly well.

      I have epic games, gog, steam games all working through launchers that work pretty perfectly. The biggest pain points are developers with intrusive anticheats.

      Check the games you/your friends play against protondb.com or areweanticheatyet.com before committing yourself.

      Rule of thumb: If your game has kernel-level anticheat, it probably won’t work. If your game doesn’t have any anticheats, there’s a 95% chance it will work on Linux.

      Still no good if you play about 70% of games with an anticheat. Outside of that it’s fine if you’re willing to put up with general Linux issues

      I’ve been 100% Linux for almost 8 years now and a fairly heavy gamer. There’s a handful of games with online anticheat stuff that devs refuse to make compatible, but beyond that it’s almost always click install and play in Steam even for stuff that isn’t “compatible”.

      I haven’t had time to seriously game in a decade now (single dad killed my free time), so I’m by no means well versed beyond a few things. My kids do game a lot and most of them are on Linux machines. They use a combination of Steam and standalone installs to get things working.

      I don’t run into a lot of complaints. They’re well aware that not all games run on their Linux setups, so they pick and choose games a bit more. I’m fortunate that they’re not always jonesing for the latest AAA games, but they’re also getting new ones with some regularity.
