Man, all these improvements keep coming fast... by the time I actually get my Deck it'll be a very polished experience!

Looking forward to continuing my nearly 4-year-old BotW save file with one less layer of emulation!

System76 patches APT for Pop!_OS to prevent users breaking their systems

As much as we might cringe at what Linus did, it's a good object lesson for him in just how fundamentally different Linux is from other OSes. You're allowed to do *whatever you want* including removing critical packages. Fortunately, neither starting over with a fresh install, nor fixing major breakages, are nearly as big a deal in Linux land as in Windows land. Totally breaking a system is just part of the learning process in these parts.

Probably showing my age here, but I actually quite enjoyed Sonic Adventure back when it came out on Dreamcast (even as quirky as it was). After that I just couldn't find much of that original "Sonic feel" in any of the 3D games I tried.

To each their own, I suppose, but to me, politics poison everything they touch. For games, this is true whether or not one agrees with the developer's opinions. My favorite games transport me to another reality, rather than reminding me about the things I'd rather avoid in this one.

Like others have mentioned, I too use Steam mainly because that's where most of my games were bought from. The only way to eliminate the vendor lock-in problem for good would be for all these competing game distribution services to be supplanted by a single, open-source, decentralized (so probably blockchain-based) option. The LBRY network comes to mind... it's already possible to distribute software there but the various front end clients aren't exactly tailored to it, yet. Perhaps integration with it (or another better-suited network, if there is one) would be worth looking into for the devs of, say, Lutris and/or GameHub.

As a small business owner... this belongs in the horror genre.

Quoting: NibelheimI'm curious about people DE who use standalone WM. What is your WM ?

Personnaly, I use standalone OpenBox.

I'd like to see that as a dropdown option, I'm curious what others use also. Though I realize it would be hard to list all or even most of them. (Awesome WM user of 4 years here, though I also love OpenBox and use it at work)
