Quoting: subIt's a shame, indeed.
They could've at least have a Linux and Mac build out.

Id software dosen't care about porting games to Linux and Mac, and it's sad how this company has changed. Aspyr removed all id software games from the Mac App Store, and they didn't even plan to create new versions that will be compatible with macOS Catalina.

Also remember that id is owned by Microsoft now

Valve dumped Debian Linux for Arch Linux with SteamOS 3 because surprise - faster updates

Quoting: Whitewolfe80Think the issue was Ubuntu licence meant that valve corpnwould have to pay or partner with conical and that was never going to happen.
Some of the things happened after Valve had already gone with Debian, but lets recap weird things we've heard Ubuntu / canonical do over the years.

1) talk about dropping 32bit
2) forcing packages to be installed from their own snap repos instead of deb packages or others (even going so far as to make 'apt install chromium' install the snap.)
3) they used to (still do?) Enable experimental hardware support in their kernels.)
4) work on Unity instead of devoting development effort toward Gnome.
5) work on Mir instead of devoting development time to Wayland.

I am sure there are more.

Oh yeah I remember the amazon deal they had too but and i know debian does too but ubuntu has a large commerical arm well large in terms of linux commerical arms and valve chosing them after battering microsoft for closed wall eco system and that forced snap packages is the linux version of that.

Zorin OS 16 Pro brings a little Windows 11 flavour to Linux
13 August 2021 at 8:56 pm UTC

Quoting: pcavalcantiwhat's the point of providing a windows 11 layout? Not even windows users want that. The first thing I see them doing is to try to find the setting to put it back in the corner.

Other than that, Zorin and Deepin are the most user-friendly distros out there. Well, Deepin used to be when I last tried it, at least.

Yeah but deepin is suspect at best i just do not trust a chinese distro its probably fine and my paranoia but no it would be the same as installing red star linux (the offical north korean linux distro) the sheer amount of monitoring software on that thing with every website apart from the state news webpage blocked
