TheSHEEEPIs there any reason to go with "official" wine instead of wine-staging? I always use the latter and never had any problems.

Not every fix in Wine staging works well for some games. Some actually make things worse.

A small note about affiliate links. It's a way for GOG to partner with various sites. If user comes to GOG through the affiliate link, GOG pays some money to the partner site. Same logic as how most ads work, except more direct. So it's a good way to give some support to GOL by simply clicking that link.

A number of sites have such arrangement, for example https://scummvm.org (see GOG logo on the right there). So if you ever visit them, click it

MohandevirYou have obviously much more experience about this kind of stuff than I do, but I'm curious to know why you think we will never hear about it again?

Releasing hardware is just hard. Tons of things can go wrong and if they aren't releasing it and not telling what's going on - you can suspect they have some serious setbacks.

MintedGamerI'm done with GOG thanks to their Linux Galaxy client farce.

People buy games there, not clients

Not anywhere close. They aren't currently working on it.

The first release candidate for Wine 3.0 is now available for testing, fixes for The Witcher 3 included
11 December 2017 at 2:46 am UTC

sr_ls_boyWhat patches are needed for witcher 3?

See the howto.

There is also a patch for invisible and distorted monsters, but it's not ready yet (causes a freeze at least with radeonsi).

Mesa 17.3.0 release to further advance open source graphics drivers

Quotelibtxc_dxtn is now integrated into Mesa. GL_EXT_texture_compression_s3tc and GL_ANGLE_texture_compression_dxt are now always enabled on drivers that support them
That's real handy for those that have to install 32-bit versions of Mesa libraries to play DRM-free games

There was a drop-in replacement even before - libtxc-dxtn-s2tc. But I suppose s3tc proper is better.

See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S2TC

Here's another way to look at the Linux market share on Steam

Boogiepop_PhantomNo, just no. All the most horrible atrocities were commit by states, governments.

Spoiler, click me
Consider corporation, that basically became the government. What will prevent same atrocities from happening? Something like USSR was actually the case. The government had full monopoly on production.

Same Putin and his cronies basically control all of the big money in Russia. So here you have it.
