As a side note, what I'd like Steam to tell me these days is whether a game is best played with keyboard and mouse or controller (Deck or TV should be more or less equivalent).
Anyone else is wondering when picking their next game?
Maybe this deserves its own topic.

Looks like AMD GPU growth trend is back to normal now, since shortages and overpricing are finally over.

Yeah, I often think that this'd be a nice feature, even without considering the Steam Deck. With all of the input options that PC-gaming offers, it actually seems a bit strange that they haven't done this already - I can remember console-game boxes doing this decades ago!

Quoting: stylonI won't talk about my actual gaming PC as I'll probably get roasted alive... but I will say the Steam Deck has opened my eyes to stuff I didn't realise was possible so who knows where that might lead me in the future...
You could solve that problem by adding another drive and dual booting.

I might just give that a try... can you recommend a good guide to doing that with Win 11?

General steps I can remember from memory are:
1. Install Windows first (done)
2. Boot to Linux thumb drive
3. Install Linux and boot loader onto dedicated drive. Do not overwrite your Windows drive or boot loader.
4. Go into your BIOS and tell it to boot to the Linux drive by default
5. Once booted to Linux, tell Grub to scan all your drives for other operating systems so that when your BIOS boots to the Linux boot loader, you can select Windows if you like. You can even have the Linux boot loader boot to Windows by default.

And, of course, the Arch wiki covers this topic in detail. :)

Stylon, mind the warning in the coloured box here:

Thanks guys, I need to go do some research (best version of Linux to go for and all that kind of thing).
The month has passed already but anyways, if I am using nvidia open kernel modules should I propriearty or open source GPU driver? Theoritically I should choose open source becuase pretty much every GPU deiver is propriearty firmware + open software stack except on Nvidia open all graphics stack is in the firmware.

I think the question is now confusing becasue it doesn't differentiate kernel driver and graphics stack like OpenGL / Vulkan. Before there was no option to have a mix.
