Quoting: GuestBuy from Valve, support Valve! They are the ones that deserve our support!

With that as the first comment, I do believe I'm about 2 steps away from leaving the entire community for good.

No company is your friend. Regardless of how much they invest in your preferred ecosystem.

And miss out on all the fanboyisming? ;)

Jokes aside, I get where the OC is coming from because Valve are clearly the only store company to actually put resources into Linux. However, the situation isn't as black and white as people always make it out to be. GOG as a company, as we reported, aren't exactly doing well, and so spending out on a niche market like ours is obviously not going to be their focus.

I do hope eventually though that GOG pulls through, so they can expand their efforts. They clearly do still have a lot of fans and we definitely don't want to end up with a single store propping everything up. Multiple stores has many benefits, even if your #1 is Steam. As we all know, competition is healthy :)

I feel like I should come up with a term for "fear of Steam fanboys". Maybe Thermoaquafanboyaphobia?

For what it's worth, the site and how it's run I enjoy; it's the trends of the community (for some definition of that term) I'm obviously not aligned with. I'm saddened, no denying that, but not angry (occasionally annoyed - everyone is sometimes) because, well, times change! I have been considering walking away entirely for a little while now as a result, but not quite there yet.
And this is not really about some nice games on sale on GOG, so I'll leave off this thread here to avoid further disruption. Unless I happen to find something on GOG that I really like and want to share.

Lutris has become pretty decent at running lots of Win-only games from GOG, so I recommend taking a look there, at least when there's a sale.

Off-topic and flamebait I'd say.

I'll leave what's up with this note: coming to articles you're not interested in, to tell people you're not interested and just...yeah, how about we just don't do that? Let's try and attempt to stay on topic for articles.
Quoting: GuestBuy from Valve, support Valve! They are the ones that deserve our support!

No thanks. I only support game devs that make Linux DRM FREE local MP/Single Player titles and/or Cloud Based Online Only games that support Linux. Valve is great and all but they don't cater to my Linux specific needs which is why it's great to have more choices not less.
Quoting: GuestI get it, but through Valves open source projects and efforts, I'd guess quite a few titles you have are specifically related to Valve and their spending to make games work on all Linux versions.

I like open source and don't like evasive DRM. That's why I like Valve because they are all in on open source and don't have hard core DRM. Linux is easy enough to lock down so that the DRM can't get anything anyway, so it's a moot point for me.

The way you're advocating for Steam and Valve does more harm than good. I've been on Linux since the 90's. I'm also a member of several LUGs and I work with non-profits to help build and donate Linux computers to the public...How you are going about it leaves a bad taste and make those on the fence about Steam or Linux or both give them pause to enter.

You don't need to PREACH anything in life. If it's good, ppl will come to it on their own. Especially when it's something as well known as Steam.

The discourse should be framed in a way that reflects the article and nature of the open source movement which is about giving ppl more choices versus asking everyone one to line up behind one flag.

Quoting: GuestYeah, just remember, if Valve fails at making Linux a gaming OS and stops trying, you better get to liking Windows. All your dear DRM free devs aren't going to give a damn about your 1% market share without Valve pushing it.

if someone is ofended because I stated my opinion on who to support to move our OS further, and ends up not using Linux because of my very simple comment, it's on them. You're making a literal mountain out of a literal mole hill.

If Valve fails, Linux will still be here. It was here before Valve. Linux gaming existed before Valve. I started using Linux in 1998. The last time I touched Windows was in 1999. My job does not use Linux. I've been gaming soley on Linux since the summer of 1999. My family has been on Linux since 2003. My children who entered the workforce have jobs that allow them to use whatever OS they want so long as they remote in are on Linux. You don't bring ppl to the table the way you are trying to do. You just use it and others will see if it's for them or not.

What you are doing is putting your opinion out into the world with an irresponsible tone which is counter to the argument and ideals of what birthed Linux.

Community 1st.
