So next up is the Steam Linux half-time celebration, where steam is half of it's life available on Linux (since Feb 14, 2013).

As previously mentioned, my account also has more time lived on Linux than on Windows - amazing times.

Seems the Valve Steam Deck has been impressing people with some hands-on time

I cant be the only one that thinks using Witcher 3 in the thumbnail in the LTT Video is ironic? Is this intentional?

I think this is where valve should step in an help out and/or push game studios to also update & publish the Linux/Stadia version onto Steam for Linux desktop... which seems to me like low hanging fruits...?

Seems like we haven't seen the last of Spectre, UVA Engineering discover new CPU attacks

well...

Quote“In the case of the previous Spectre attacks, developers have come up with a relatively easy way to prevent any sort of attack without a major performance penalty” for computing, Moody said. “The difference with this attack is you take a much greater performance penalty than those previous attacks.”

Quoting: kellerkindtCome on Valve. For Stadia games in general. The extra effort they need to be convinced to do is so small that Valve wouldn't need to get out their big guns/sponsorships/whatever. Offer them to take 1% less from their revenue for a year if they provide a proper and working Linux version or something trivial like that.

CDPR have their own store. They can sell the game on Linux and get 100% of the money, so I really doubt that Valve fees are the problem for a Linux version of this game.

Well, I meant that as financial encouragement for CDPR :)

I don't understand that Valve isn't talking CDPR into a Linux release on steam. I mean, they see as we do, that there will be a native Linux port of the game, which is missing just a tiny* bit of extra effort for a Linux release on Steam.

It just feels like Valve is missing the low hanging fruits here with not getting Stadia games on Linux for Steam. They are doing all the driver and kernel involvements but skip the final blow.

*comparing it to the whole port

As an afterthought: Feral could provide the Stadia-to-Linux-Steam effort and support
