About the author -
After many years of floating through space on the back of a missile, following a successful career in beating people up for not playing Sega Saturn, the missile returned to earth. Upon returning, I discovered to my dismay that the once great console had been discontinued and Sega had abandoned the fight to dominate the world through 32-bit graphical capabilities.

After spending some years breaking breeze blocks with my head for money and being mocked by strangers, I have found a new purpose: to beat up people for not playing on Linux.

Quoting: ZanvalI missed G2A in the list of vendors :)

And omg, there's a full article in this comments section :)
Oh, don't get me started on G2A. Rant in a nutshell: they have stolen keys and those keys are most likely for Windows versions which means you won't be supporting porting houses like Feral and Aspyr if you buy from there. If it's cheap, there's a catch.

I would never, ever buy from G2A, and it pains me to see people buying from them. I don't care what people say, it's just bad.

Quoting: ShaoluHoly cow that was a lot longer than I originally intended. I get too verbose when I'm tired. Okay, going to bed now @_@

But you wrote a really good and informative rant! I completely agree with on exception. I don't believe that Mint is the most used Distro. Distrowatch is so serious and objective as Phoronix is... not that much. ;)

this is true, but drivers won't be much of an issue once Vulkan is publicly released and added to Linux standard of distros. Valve will pretty much handle the vendor lock-in and advertisement if all goes well.
Ease of use is something DEs are working on all the time, which if the platform gains enough popularity, which wouldn't have to be a lot, because of the work Valve is doing, we could end up with more developers in the Linux community. Which in turn would enable more development across the board. So only time will tell how this will unfold. :)
