I'm going to throw out a guess here that a lot of developers that do release on Steam for Linux do not have the slightest clue what the Steam runtime even is.

Steam hits a new all-time high for users online, Linux share rises

For Steam to have cloud gaming, their games have to run on their servers, and I'm going to go on the assumption that these servers will/are running Linux. Unlike Stadia though, this means that any game that is ported, or at least developer-supported to work on Proton, will also be available to us.

Don't know why "maintenance mode" was a red flag for something feature complete.

AMD has strong revenue growth again, new next-gen RDNA GPUs coming this year

keanHow is the driver support? I am planning to upgrade my CPU and GPU (1600 and 1060) to a 3600/3600x and 5600XT. I had issues in the past with my RX 480, but never with the 1060. Would you recommend switching back to AMD?

My partner's Rx Vega 56 has some driver issue that causes it to hang the system due to a bug with undervolting at high load. We applied some kernel workarounds to fix it, and ordered a bigger PSU so it won't need to undervolt. So, I guess there are issues, but in general it performs very well.
