Quoting: axredneck"Session type" graph has not very good colors: link
Thanks for the feedback, have given them dedicated colours that will stay the same now and they're clear on both website themes.
Quoting: Liam DaweI agree I think we're long passed the point where the timing on Wine based questions make sense so they will be removed.

Edit: Wine/Steam Play questioning was removed. In future, we may look to introduce other questions about them but the previous questions didn't fit with the way this survey works and frankly they weren't even useful. Thanks for the feedback. This does streamline it a bit too for now :)
I think it is a mistake to completely remove Wine/Proton from the questions. It seems like too big a part of Linux gaming to ignore it.

The "recently" question was not bad, even if it gets stale. I saw it as reflecting the user's frequency of use. You could adjust the wording a bit to be less about the direct past (last week, last month) and to be more about the general case (how often per year, per month).

You also want to be careful not to lose continuity with your old stats. You have a useful survey tracking linux gaming over time. Suddenly removing a question destroys the ability to track trends in that area.

The questions were bad, and cannot simply just be changed because of all the previous data. The questions themselves weren't good or useful in any way in their previous form, so they made no sense to keep around. That doesn't mean I am ignoring it, not at all, I just haven't had time to hook in any new questions on top of all the other work that has to go into GOL and actually have some free time ;)

AMD GPU usage in the last trend data: 37.54% and rising. That's pretty good.
The most popular GPU: still AMD RX 580.

Quoting: TimeFreezeI have a Suggestion: How about a Section for the Init you use? Like systemd,openrc, runinit, s6...

That's a very edge question in relation to gaming. And I'll make a wild guess that the vast majority are using systemd anyway.

Quoting: Liam DaweYeah, honestly that sounds like a fluff detail we don't really need.

Can you please add monitor refresh rate and usage of adaptive sync points? Those are directly gaming related and would be interesting to see, in addition to already existing resolution.

I thought of asking for Variable Refresh Rate / Adaptive Sync as well.
Still a fan of a special question per month that's interesting, but maybe not worth to be included in the survey, BTW.

I think refresh rate and adaptive sync are good questions for regular survey, not just a one month thing.

I really like this idea, however, I am wondering how this would work with multiple monitors ?

For example, I have 2 monitors, one is 180Hz with Gsync, and the other is 75Hz, so technically I could play at 180Hz (max) with Gsync enabled, (like I did when I was using Windows), but under linux, I am capped at 75Hz with no Gsync...

So I am afraid that the answer to these question will be biased.

If I had such a setup, i'd disable the second monitor for gaming to get what I payed for.
