Are we seeing the end of the most recent "golden age" of Linux gaming?

Desktop Linux in general has improved a ton over the last years. I've used it from the late 90s to 2005 and now again since 2019. The difference is huge. Things that were really tedious to get working back then now often work out of the box or with minimal configuration, and I'm not even talking about a "newbie-friendly distribution" (I use Arch).
The amount of tediousness I had to deal with has decreased substantially, and the amount of games that either work natively or run really well with Wine/Proton has increased substantially.
It's amazing.
Unfortunately, Linux has already firmly earned its reputation of being too tedious for general use way back in the late 90s already so it is always an uphill battle for market share and company support. That's why you shouldn't think that progress will be fast. It might be fast once it reaches critical market share. But that's way off. Until then, progress will be slow but steady. It's just a matter of time.
