No Man's Sky runs very nicely on Linux with Steam Play, huge online feature update and VR support coming

ScooptaI don't think Linux will die like that but back in the day one of the reasons for OS/2's demise was devs built windows software with the mentality of "OS/2 can run it too so we're targeting both."

That's a myth. OS/2 was several times more expensive than DOS/Windows and didn't support 386 CPUs, the lack of native commercial software was a consequence of the lack of market share not the cause of it.

ScooptaEven still the only game I play in Proton is Skyrim because my love for that game runs deep.

Skyrim was released four years after I started using Linux full time, so according to your rules I'm not allowed to play it and should be content with that?

ScooptaI personally enjoy Proton for things like Skyrim which I've had since I was on Windows but I still try to stand by no tux no bucks as I think it's a bit of a slippery slope.

I personally enjoy playing games. I've been on Linux since 2007, I'm not going to only play Windows games released before then. Generally I buy Linux games I want to play on or around the day of release and Windows games I want to play when they're at least 50% off, so I guess my policy is "No Tux, Less Bux".

CodeWeavers have released CrossOver 18.5 pulling in Wine 4.0 and FAudio

KohlyKohlI've never been able to justify paying that much for what you get.

What you get is to help pay the wages of most of the regular contributors to Wine, I find that quite easy to justify (though I appreciate not everyone has the spare cash). For what it's worth they do have quite regular sales.

I use Crossover for some older games where stability has more benefits than being on the cutting edge.

Valve making steps to address 'off-topic review bombs' on Steam

DedaleWhile the default is having the reviews hidden.

No, the default is not having the review bombs count towards the overall score, all the reviews will still be visible.

subThat seems to contradict what callcifer says.

Callcifer didn't say anything about emails that I can see.

EikeI switched off the emails instead.

I want the emails when they refer to Linux games.

subWill I still get informed about that game being on sale even if it only has Windows version?

Yes you will, this is precisely the problem I have with the system.

I removed all my non-Linux wishlisted games the other week, I was fed up receiving emails about Windows-only games. Valve needs to come up with a better solution.

I assume my Steam account, my Nintendo account and my PlayStation account remain separate entities?
