There, fixed the title for you.

Valve help developers into adding more controller support with new stats

Quoting: Appelsin
Quoting: sarmadToo bad Steam Controllers are only 2%.

Too bad Valve never really wanted to sell them to anyone. Just like the Steam Link. If they'd actually been easily available for purchase then they would have sold a ton. In Norway, you couldn't really get one outside of Ebay.

I agree. Valve doesn't seem to be serious about selling hardware. I still remember the lame launch of the Steam Machines.

Too bad they are discontinued. We desperately need a second version.

The Steam Controller deserves to be wildly successful. Valve just seems pretty meh when they market hardware.

Indeed. A second version with a better build quality is needed, and is probably all it takes to have the steam controllers take off, aside from better marketing that is. Seriously, why did Valve market these as keyboard/mouse replacement rather than simply a better controller with higher precision?

and f*ck you Goolag altogether!

Why the hate? Out of all the big companies, Google is the most respectful of open source, and the only big company that always supported Linux with their tools.

Quoting: elmapulchromeOS taking ages to do that, meanwhile microsoft WSL come out of nowhere and its running fine...

Maybe because Microsoft has only one operating system to work on, while Google for some mysterious reason has three?

GNOME Shell to get an Activities Overview design revamp in GNOME 40

Quoting: Purple Library GuyI suspect a basic problem with the way user research works is that "easier to learn" is often not the same as "more effective to use". So you show people various ways of doing things and they're like "I get this one right away!" and you decide the User Has Spoken and you get something that isn't that great once people have it up and running for a while.

Yeah, and I guess in this case the people they chose to do their research on are mostly MacOS users and they gave those research users more weight than their existing user base.
The sad thing is that Gnome was the only DE with vertical layout, so there is no alternative to jump to that I know of. Let's hope someone forks it.

Google: Let's re-invent the wheel and create our own unique OS.
*later on*
Google: Ops, we need more of the standard stuff working. Let's hack things together and make our own OS look more like a standard Linux.

Seriously, why?
