I thought I already had DIRT: Rally, but it was DIRT: Showdown I already owned. Not anymore, now I own both! Thanks Liam!

Just---wow. I'll wait for the reviews to come in, but unless there's something really broken in the design, this will be the first game I'll have paid full price for since Fallout 4.

I'm actually worried that if I buy No Man's Sky I'll never play anything else ever again. Their improving the Linux performance isn't helping.

NanobangAs I reinstalled Ubuntu Mate, I wondered why, if Manjaro could determine that I had an Optimus setup, would the DE offer me an option that would bork my OS? Rather than get an answer, I decided I wasn't ready for the thing.
In my experience, when you install Manjaro into a VM, it will install every Nvidia driver! Of course the VM is not using real GPU acceleration and those drivers are useless in the VM. I don't think removing the drivers was an option, either, because it was a dependency of the hardware detection tool, which was a dependency of the Manjaro Core suite.

Interesting. So something about an Optimus setup confounds Manjaro? Maybe they'll integrate Nvidia's Optimus GPU switcher and somehow use it to present a better GPU selection for the Optimus-burdened user.

NanobangI'm going to wishlist the Steam version and purchase it further on down the line as a way to support the app financially.

Why not send them money via their official Donation page? That way you can support Krita without Valve taking a cut. I figure being present on Steam is mostly meant for people who have never heard of Krita before (or are stuck on an inferior operating system).

Excellent suggestion!

When Ubuntu was mewling about removing everything 32bit from their world, I installed Manjaro (XFCE) on my laptop. It's an Optimus lappy and I just run it in blast furnace, Nvidia only, mode. Attempting to set the Nvidia driver, I borked my install by choosing the Nvidia-only option. Oops. As I reinstalled Ubuntu Mate, I wondered why, if Manjaro could determine that I had an Optimus setup, would the DE offer me an option that would bork my OS? Rather than get an answer, I decided I wasn't ready for the thing.

A couple years back I ran Manjaro Gnome on my desktop and I wondered about the infrequency of security updates. They seemed far less frequent than I was used to getting on Ubuntu. Before I got around to looking into it, I borked my rig and the point was moot.

Apropos of nothing, I cannot break myself of the habit of pronouncing it "Man-haro", as if it were a Spanish word. XD

I've been using Krita ever since I bought my first (cheap Huion brand) graphics tablet, last year. It really is powerful. Makes me want a better tablet every time I use it.

Even though I've installed the version from Flathub.org, I'm going to wishlist the Steam version and purchase it further on down the line as a way to support the app financially.

Also, good to see Aspyr porting that update out the same day as it was released. Yup, suuuurrrrre is good to see Aspyr updating their port so folks can play with their Windows friends online. Imagine if Aspyr---and this is really nuts---didn't update a port quickly like this. What would people---GAAAAAAA REALLY ASPYR??? GAAAWWWWDDAMMIT!!! The next GOD DAMN THING you say better be "Here's that Borderlands 2 update we promised."
