There is no proton status yet but I played the demo of revival : colonization for steam fest next and it was running fine.

Does 100% include the tax part (VAT) ? Because even if Epic don't take its 12%, tax office will takes its cut (around 20% in most countries, at least the one I know)

There is even a gnome game manager link . edit: two, gnome-game also exist

Quoting: hardpenguin
Quoting: Avikarr
Quoting: hardpenguinI played it just recently and this game has not aged well 😅
Yeah, the same thing with my try. Controls, mechanics etc. Just terrible. Baldurs Gate 1 & 2 for example aged much better. Seriously.
My thoughts exactly... I thought that third-party campaigns will make it more bearable but nope.

We are 4 with exactly the same feeling. I can't believe that NWN was released only one year after ToB.
I've tried to do a run of 3rd party campaign NWN:EE with a friend after finishing BG2 but nope, we just moved to 3rd party campaign on Solasta.

I see some reader trying to make sense of not porting to Linux using a rentability computation. It makes zero sense, it will almost always be profitable to port on Linux for the extra copies sold for popular games.
But financial computation are all about RoI not profit anymore. From a RoI point of view, porting on Linux is not so interesting anymore.
Worse, assuming a marginal RoI computation, proton makes porting on Linux all the more uninteresting as there is still some copies sold on Linux with absolutely no cost.
While proton has been formidable for the Linux players it has given to company incentive on not caring about Linux.

Canonical planning an immutable desktop version of Ubuntu
5 June 2023 at 2:29 pm UTC

I don't understand the point of "immutable distro" wether it is immutable, wether it is a distro but from my point of view it can't be both.

We are going to have immutable OS partition with every program being in a kind of container, be it snap, appimage, flatpak and so forth., installed via some app store à la android. But there will still be distro with package manager and maintainers. Both have their use case. I know that I really loved package manager when I started using Linux and that's one of my favorite things of the Linux environment but I also respect other views not everyone wants to care about dependencies.

Have you picked up anything during Steam Sports Fest 2023?

Nope as I'm not into sport games. But I loved Tacticon 2023 that happened just before. Small, highly specialised festival like that are really cool.

Battlestar Galactica Deadlock is free to keep this weekend

It worked also for me with an AMD GPU. I did not choose the compatibility layer so it worked with whatever is the default proton version today.
