Quoting: AciDWhat a waste :(

Ok, I see the waste of space. But what would you do with the 47 downloaded games? Are you looking through them for update notes? I guess it's not like you touched all of them in the last weeks and care too much? I'd "effacer tout" and all data I'm actually interested in fits fine on the screen.

Sometimes Steam downloads 60+ updates the same day.
I indeed want to see the update notes, since the "News" banner in the library is very, very limited (and algorithmically curated, which is wrong imho).

Displaying the downloads with the same tiled view than in the library would be better in my opinion.

Quoting: EikeI never had more than half a dozen games to download, and if I would, I wouldn't care to watch them downloading..

Well, when you have lots of disk space, a 4k screen and lots of games, you can pretty easily get that kind of page :
Steam wasted space

The wasted space indeed.
This looks horrible.

Valve could just display the small informations (downloaded, total download size, ETA) below each thumbnails alongside controls like (download / pause, cancel).
That way you could stuff as many game thumbnails close to each other like in the library page.

Those thumbnails could be sorted as above ; active, queued, scheduled, completed.

Time to get testing Ubuntu 21.04 ahead of release, plus Canonical loses another face

Who needs Ubuntu when you have Debian Testing ? ;)

This looks a lot like shapez.io.
Combining the two could be fun :)

Quoting: aokamiValve always came up with innovative gameplay [...] team fortress is a masterclass of creating classes in a multiplayer game, and so on and so forth.

Just to set things straight, Team Fortress was created in 1996 as a Quake 1 mod (https://www.moddb.com/mods/team-fortress).
THEN, and only then, Valve hired Cook and Walker to port the modification to their goldsrc engine.

Anyway, Valve is doing great things for the Linux community, so kudos to them.
