Nearly 4 years later, Steam still won’t close to the tray icon on Linux without workarounds
30 November 2016 at 1:02 pm UTC Likes: 2

Closes to tray on Mint 18.
But clicking on the icon doesn't display the window again, it opens the right-click menu and I have to click on Library. Annoying.

A third of Valve now working on VR, still no Linux support

cRaZy-bisCuiTI don't give a d**n - who cares about VR?
A great lot of people who love immersion and, more generally, amazing sensations they've never experienced before.

zimplex1I personally don't see steam as an issue/problem, even as drm since it's not invasive or hindering in any way.
The problem will become apparent if Valve start doing too many bad moves and/or there's a better platform raising that you want to move to. At this point you should realize that having hundreds of games bound to a client that you don't want to use anymore is a problem.

Amazon launches Lumberyard, a free game engine that will support Linux and have source access

XodetaetlCalm down. They're not forcing you to do anything, but in practice using the engine does cost you money if you want to include support for some sort of cloud services. Amazon never said the engine was libre software, and of course it wouldn't even exist if they didn't see any commercial potential in it. You'll just have to come to terms with the fact that corporations want to make money.
I'm reacting to TheBoss saying that a constraining commercial practice is a good idea, details of the commercial practice are off the subject.

QuoteIt's another way to hook people into using Amazon AWS services (you're not allowed to use other cloud services for it) [...] It's a good idea, and I hope it works out well.
Forcing people to use some product for purely commercial reasons is a good idea??

Master of Orion officially confirmed for Linux & SteamOS by Wargaming

Nitpicking as usual but what's the point of saying "Linux & SteamOS" ? It sounds as if they were two completely separate platforms. You should rather write it as "Linux / SteamOS" which implies that it's basically the same thing.

XodetaetlThe devs did fix the only bug the game had with Wine though, so it's perfectly playable on Linux.

Discussion here: https://steamcommunity.com/app/261570/discussions/0/617330406660903267/%29
And fixed in patch 1: "Fixed text rendering when playing in DX9 mode."

Such an obvious trap. They're just going to take your money and shit on our platform. Are you a masochist or just have no spine? It's time to drop the false empathy for using WINE. It's a double-edged sword and not worth losing the progress we have made with 1750+ native games.
Hey, you're aggressive. I only acknowledged some merit from the dev and informed those who really want to play this game that they can. But indeed I don't support the "zero compromises" attitude, it's an extremist position. The presence of full Linux support weighs heavily on my decision to buy a game or not, but depriving myself entirely from enjoying great games because their creators aren't good pupils... this, would be masochistic. ;)

Divinity: Original Sin - Enhanced Edition Delayed For Linux, Again

liamdaweMy one pledge isn't going to make all that much difference
That's right, but reporting in the article that you don't pledge and why you don't, does influence the many article's readers, which isn't insignificant. And that's why I replied to that, to counter this influence, not to change your mind specifically.

Divinity: Original Sin - Enhanced Edition Delayed For Linux, Again

QuoteI am so very glad I stopped Kickstarting Linux games a long time ago. Far, far too many broken promises.
It's not the right attitude IMO. I don't remember having to wait for all the other kickstarted big RPGs (Wasteland, Pillars, Shadowrun) and without Linux users supporting those campaigns, we wouldn't have a Linux version.

If you're not happy with some studios delaying the Linux port, you can ask for a refund. Some will respond favorably to that (the devs of Consortium did in my case). The others do deserve all your hate. But avoiding crowdfunding entirely just because of them is not doing us any good.
