    Why the fuck would you install a free as in freedom operating system just to install proprietary malware anyways? Go back to windows, Ganker manchild.

    Steam is trying, every once and a while they release new proton versions.

    I think there should be some games that are Linux only to incentivize people to switch and provide more support. I thought it would be a fun idea for valve to make half life 3 and then make it a Linux exclusive

      You'll have to make it a timed exclusive. Games are multiplat nowadays.

    What? He's not alone, he's just the most talked about because he's visible and a Red Hat employee. There's that one guy that does the same thing except he's in Arch compared to him in Fedora.

      Proton is the solution to the "Chicken and egg" problem linux had where no one wanted to move to linux because nogaems and devs didn't want to make games on linux because nogamers

            The DT_HASH change broke Easy Anti-Cheat, which is literally malware. It's good that they have to suffer.

            I didn't say that. Unreal Tournament 2004 isn't open source, but it's also not malicious software.

              You wouldn't have encountered this issue if you used the steam flatpak, which you should be

                I don't play games that require malware to launch. It doesn't matter to me.

      Most game devs wouldn't support Linux anyway so what is your point?
      If they want to support Linux, then they would make a Linux-native build of their games

        even the devs that do support linux, their native builds are most of the time really bad, proton version runs better

      I get your point anon but at the same time every time I've been excited about a game having a native port I wind up having to use the proton version instead because the native port is fucking garbage.

      Yeah, Windows would have been the only platform to play games on why did we let them get away with this bros.

      This is fixed by launching them with:
      LANG=ja_JP.UTF-8 wine game.exe

      Simpler than using a locale emulator on Windows.

        no no I dont mean that, games like Catherine or Atelier ryza have some weird problems due to bad coding I believe

            Nah, Cathrine doesn't try to set the resolution to 1x1 in Windows. It does in Linux.

              I bet it does but Microsoft inserted a hack into the OS to ignore the request.
