Alm888The biggest shot in the foot Microsoft® made was "DirectX™ 12 Windows™ 10 lock-in".
Maybe you are too young to remember how many times Microsoft shot itself in the foot. Here's a small list...
  • Windows Vista DRM
  • Windows 8 metro UI
  • Windows RT app incompatibility
  • Windows 10 NSAtc reporting

Whitewolfe80The code has not been tampered with no code injection has taken place they havent(sic) re written direct x to get it to work so they shouldnt(sic) have any legal grounds.
Yeah, sure. This didn't stop Oracle® from suing Google® for its Java™ API implementation.
TemplarGRStop with the FUD. Even if they sue they won't get anywhere. WINE infringes on no copyright, plus it has existed for 2 decades, legally they have lost the right to pursue anything now.
Even if a court ultimately rejects all claims, this can take ages and Valve®'s reputation will be tarnished. And, more importantly, the court can forbid any Valve®'s economical activity in the US of America during the process in order to prevent any possible further violations. By the time Microsoft® will be forced to pay reparation it will be useless because Valve® will be bankrupt.
Oracle has history of stalling development of MySQL that it bought from Sun Microsystems.
Google's Android is open source, and encourages open standards.
So, Oracle suing Google made Google the unsung Hero. Sure Google spent loads of money fighting Oracle, but the worldwide fame it brought to 'Android', made it the Top Operating System.

If Microsoft sues Valve, you can be assured that the "view of Microsoft supporting Linux initiatives" will be destroyed, and Valve will become the unsung Hero, making Steam OS another Top Operating System.

Duke TakeshiPath of exile works great with . Tried it myself just recently.
Does lutris include DXVK ?
If not, is there a walkthrough/guideline for installing DXVK ? or will the DXVK from Steam client work with Lutris ?

lucifertdarkApart from hitting the button to enable all games does anyone know how to add games to the list of compatible games as they are tested? is it something we can do ourselves or are we waiting for Valve to add them for us?

QuoteWe will be enabling more titles in the near future as testing results and development efforts progress; in the meantime, enthusiast users are also able to try playing non-whitelisted games using an override switch in the Steam client. Going forward, users can vote for their favorite games to be considered for Steam Play using platform wishlisting

Valve may be adding support for using compatibility tools for playing games on different operating systems

Comandante ÑoñardoThat is the old Steamplay feature, available for years...

The new steamplay feature is different:
...
"Steam Play will automatically install compatibility tools that allow you to play games from your library that were built for other operating systems."

Maybe this Compatibility tool is SteamOS exclusive.

QuoteSteam Play allows you to purchase your games once and play anywhere. Whether you have purchased your Steam Play enabled game on a Mac or PC (both Windows and Linux), you will be able to play on the other platform free of charge.
...
What do I do when I get "Unsupported Platform" when attempting to play a game on Linux or my Mac?

A common reason for this error is that the game simply has not yet been released on the platform that you are attempting to play on. Additionally, please ensure there is not both a PC and a Mac listing for the title in the Library list.

I guess Valve is expanding Steamplay to patch unsupported platforms, and give a 100% "play anywhere" experience similar to Google play on Android.
...possibly by integrating DXVK into steam application for Linux, and maybe even Mac.

DamonLinuxPLI have been disappointed with such things many times. Worst of all if it will be a compatible profile for running games from xp/vista/7 in Windows 10
Here's the Official Documentation for Steam Play,
And here are the logos...

So, Unity is Finally getting serious about Linux !!!
I hope Adobe also gets on board the Linux train before we die.

Tyranny, the new RPG from Obsidian, gets a release date and will have day-1 Linux support [Updated]

LeerdeckDamn it looks awesome but I have to pass for now, I still have to finish PoE with the expansions. Seriously there too many games on Linux available now. Not good for my productivity ;)
I used to play POE through wine... player trading is pretty much non-existent there.
So I left, at-least until it gets a Linux-Native version...

...To show your love for Linux to POE devs, Vote for your Favorite Unix distribution here
