I can't help myself but expect "Planetary Annihilation: TITANS drops linux support" soon xD

The former Paradox Interactive CEO thinks "platform holders" 30% cut is "outrageous"

Lol, outrageous... it's not as if anyone was forcing developers to publish on their platform xD

Steam is invaluable because of the recognition and discoverability in addition to all the services they offer for that cut. It's worth well over 30% IMO, if they wouldn't publish on Steam they would need to compensate the cut with price of server hosting, harder cross-platform support and promotion, which are IMO much more expensive than 30% of the revenue.

Quoting: linuxcityas for people not coming to linux alot of that has to do with people just not wanting to format or change anything they have.they just don't want to come over.i have come across alot of people like that.

That's one big reason, second one is just the amount of third party software support that you get with massively used platform. People tend to stick to the platform they get most support on.

Quoting: anarchist_tomatoHave they fixed the tearing yet?

Set ForceFullCompositionPipeline in your Xorg.conf and no more tearing for you.

And no more performance for you either

Quoting: AkienNice! For those like me who can't seem able to add it to their library due to already owning Episode 1 - Paris after getting the similar free Winter holiday pack, here's a workaround:

Go to https://steamdb.info/app/439890/ and click the "Free" button, and let it open the steam:// URI in your Steam client. That worked for me to add it as an owned DLC.

Now I should actually take time to play those two episodes and buy the rest from the Feral store :D

Thank you man! :D

Windows 10 S might alarm Valve into boosting SteamOS again

Quoting: GuestYawn. Propaganda. Windows 10 S is to compete against Chromebook. Simple as that. As the article notes, 10 S can be easily unlocked for free to 10 Home which functions as normal.

If MS (or Apple with it's Mac App Store for that matter) tried to lock down Windows to their store only, across the entire range, they'd be sued before they could say "antitrust".

The real interest with SteamOS from publishers, was Steam Machines. They were interested in a console market without the interference and high cost that you get on MS/Sony/Nintendo's console systems, and they initially thought porting the Windows version of titles would be "easy". They were put off by the nonavailability of the hardware, and relatively poor 3D performance.

Windows 10 S is almost outdated, MS is already planning the "Windows Core OS" that is supposed to replace x32_64 with UWP architecture and their Store would be the only place to get sofrware from.
