New Linux Gaming Survey For November

By - | Views: 17,935
It's that time of the month again Linux gamers! The new GOL survey for November is now available, so please make sure to fill it in if you have the time.

The results will be published in the next couple of weeks now that they're being published in the same month. There have been a few minor aesthetic changes since Google Forms has been updated (sorry about the yellow).

On another note, I will be taking a less active role in the surveys from now on. A few of you may have noticed by now that I'm not the best person to do this, but I'm glad to see how far this has come and how many people see it as something valuable to the Linux gaming community.

You can find the link for the new survey here, and please share with other Linux gamers if you can. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

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.

Thanks for your work!

Under Steam Machines, I missed a point like:
"I'm waiting until the platform gets more mature. (Vulkan, more AAA-Titles, etc...)"

Btw, this is something most reviews totally miss.
It's not like the Steam Machines are "released" like a console.
They are a moving target and the best is yet to come.

Still, most influential news sites provide mostly negative reviews
on the status quo and miss out how Valve is working on the whole
environment, including developer tools (profiling, debugging),
encouraging the graphics companies to provide better drivers,
pushing Vulkan and so forth...

Yet, I almost all comments on those influential websites tell you
in unison that the Steam Machines will fail because they're utter crap
and you don't get AAA-games.

Sadly, it seems Valve's PR-department is totally failing when it comes
to the SteamOS/Steam Machines. And THIS is worrisome to me.

Oh yeah, wrong place to complain about this. Sorry. :)

Likewise with the maturity, but I still can't resist the controller even though I know there will be better iterations of it in the future.

I think you do a wonderful job with the surveys, I especially like the new design -- very swave. :D

Filled in. I bought more games than I realized last month, and I've hardly played any of them.

I just realized that I forgot to check a box for Feral's store in the "where did you buy from" question. Bah.

The survey doesn’t work without javascript anymore.

Thanks, but you can thank Google for the new aesthetics haha.

I have no idea what that entails in practical terms, or how to fix it... This is why I'm no good with this stuff!

Well it’s just a small inconvenience… I prefer to keep JS disabled as much as possible for security/privacy/performance reasons. I’m annoyed that they added a requirement for JS when it was working perfectly without before.

Oh right, so it's a Google Forms issue then... It would make sense since there seem to be a lot of aesthetic differences, small animations and things. Actually, in terms of the UI on my side of things, it's probably a bit more cumbersome and less obvious. Seems like they changed it to be more usable on tablets et. al., which usually means a worse desktop experience.

Not a huge deal we can do, unless someone feels up to designing an in-house survey or one based on an existing FOSS one.

Isn't it redundant to ask for the current GPU in the last question ("Unique Question 2"), too? I already filled in what GPU I currently have...

I kindly ask you to stop using Google Forms for this, I block Google because of privacy reasons. Google Forms have trackers too you see.

While I sympathize with your point of view, it is very easy to open the survey in a private window (Firefox) where any attempt to track you is useless. Close the window when you are done and everything that google may have recorded about you is discarded.
