This is the right decision. It's absolutely crazy what Russian government do right now, and not only government - around 70% citizens believe in propaganda, and honestly wish Ukrainians death. There is just no point to release this DLC until Russia citizens change their mind, and I don't expect it to happen anytime soon.

device that will do basic tasks
Topic of this article is desktop feature, and devices I talking about is proper Linux workstations for just £100 (for instance Station P1 cost is 107 GBP; that include case, PSU, WiFi antenna, eMMC storage).

And even for basic tasks there is other interesting alternatives (for example FriendlyElec have wide range of products for such as use-cases).

Honestly, it's a pity that RPi get all the fame while there is much more interesting boards with features like NVME support (many RK3399-based boards, such as Libre Computer Renegade Elite or NanoPC-T4) onboard USB Type-C or, you know, TWO TIMES HIGHER PERFORMANCE (like ODROID-N2+) is mostly unnoticed by media.

As for the topic - in my opinion it's better to use Canonical's image for RPi, it had working Wayland for at least a year (and you'll get smooth upgrades as a bonus). There is also Armbian that cover more than 100 boards, and now RPi too. There is also UEFI implementations for several boards (such as RPi4B and ROCKPro64) that allow to boot aarch64 installation media from USB flash drive that was intended for usage with UEFI-based boards (such as Avatek Ampere Alta Workstation and HoneyComb LX2 Workstation).

I've been able to play it via proton without issues, good performance (50~60fps) with almost everything maxed out on a gtx 1060 3GB, 1080p
Cool, but how to import Captain Spirit save game from Proton to Linux version of the Life is Strange 2?

They don't need Nouveau to work properly, they need Nouveau to work enough to justify keeping certain kernel interfaces in place, to prevent cases like this one.

Like EA sabotage themselves every year, yet they earn more money every year?

The open source game manager Lutris had another sweet update recently

Also, I playing Prey on Proton right now, and find that eventually game starting to crash, corrupt save files and stuff. Somehow, disabling esync OR increasing DefaultLimitNOFILE doesn't help - for some reason, only doing both (second advice here) help me get rid of crashes and corrupted save files.

Let's visit Prey page:

As we can see, there is four installation scripts and no workarounds for crashes. I'm afraid there is many games left in such semi-working state in Lutris database.
