Bought the "Pink Ribbon Charity Pack" DLC already. Because why not?

I don't know about y'all. As myself, I seldomly donating to "the cause" as I can't afford it. So, I used this opportunity to donate. My money will use to fight cancer and I got Pink liveries. Great deal.

Hope you'll also use this opportunity too..

A French court has ruled that Valve should allow people to re-sell their digital games

IMO, two posibilities outcome for future game stores/clients:

1. Return to sort of new style ownership ala physical copies era. (kinda Great)
2. End of software copy and "game streaming" and every new bullshit-ness. (Seriously, I'll quit gaming, in legit way)

Indeed. Interesting times.

Canonical have listed what 32bit packages they will continue to support through Ubuntu 20.04

QuoteAdditionally, their methodology for picking the packages included ensuring some well-known apps continue working like Unity, Godot, printer drivers and more.
Well, for me it sounds like Canonical wanted to try "pay to maintain" model to some "profitable entities".

We need to understand that 32 bit architecture/application is (and still) unique situation in computer history as it was grown in popularity during the PC market boomed in late 1990's / early-2000 plus popularity and reliability of Win XP that no other Windows before and after can matched it's ability. As like Android apps today, many software developers builder at that time built their program/apps around Win XP and 32 bit. Many of those software still being used, reliable, sometimes up-to-date and more importantly many of those can run on Wine perfectly better than run on some modern Windows.

So, let's say 32bit "things" (and all it's argument of existence) will stay around for a very long time.

Sometimes, it's better to keep your mouth shut and 'follow the flow' than say something that will stirring up many hornet nests.

That's my motto of life, even do it sound's hypocritical.

DISCLAIMER: All views expressed in this comments are my own and do not necessarily represent the views of GamingOnLinux website, readers, commentators, its affiliations and any Linux gamers around the world.

Sorry GoL, I'm refuse to support SG, even do their Linux track record is mostly clean.

Honestly, I'd already put ignored SG on my Steam acc and personally ban them from my life forever. Gladly, I'd never bought any games from them so my lost.

Seriously, we shouldn't rewarding any these "developers" for these malicious and 'low ball' tactics especially those tactics certainly will destroying Linux gaming platform in long run.

I always support for more money for developers but I'm much prioritize the well-being of Linux gaming platform now and in the future.

Still, anyone Linux or non-Linux gamers alike, who wants to support them feel free to do so. Who am I to stop y'all.

I gonna say I'm fall in love with "Automatic Show", it's have very huge potential. The best alternatives to watch the games' gameplay/trailers and at the same time avoid/evading some bias youtubers/streamers/news/shill-curator bullshit-ness.

10 years ago GamingOnLinux was created, what a ride it's been
6 July 2019 at 2:35 pm UTC

A bit late but, Happy 10th years old GoL! Yeah, from Wine and "Linux only use by hackers" to kinda not mainstream but still niche gaming platform.

Regardless, we as Linux users cannot satisfy with what we have right now. Always remember:
How to be a great advocate for a niche gaming platform

As usual, bumpy roads ahead so we must ready to go through it..

The former Paradox Interactive CEO thinks "platform holders" 30% cut is "outrageous"

SalvatosI'm speechless. It's like you intended to post this to a completely different community. Take it easy, mate.
The problem here is some "elitist" (Publs, devs, some ignorance journalist and so-called gaming fans, etc. etc.), accused us the "3rd world citizens" (I'm using that term on purpose) as pirates! They accused or "called" us too poor to buy their games.

I was former "sailor", I was a loyal customer of "pasar malam" CD/DVD either games or films, and I'd been a part of so-called "illegal analog hole" community. You know why? Because of service. Buying their product was either hard or almost impossible. Valve's Steam changed it for us either you like it or not.

Best part of Steam, they offers various types of payment, local or international. Either credit card, pay via mobile phone credits/bill, and hell, even on cash on delivery! Explained on this reddit post. (reddit link)

I know some indie devs (not so-fucking-called "indies" backed by big publs) are poor (or even poorer than me). That's why I always check their games are available on itch.io first and then if available I buy it from there. Most itch.io games always includes Steam keys, so theorically I got 2 copies in one price even do it's always 2-3 times more expensive than my "local" Steam.

For example Slipstream : (Steam link)

On itch: USD 9.99 (or RM 41.34) (itch link)
On Steam, non discount : RM 23.50 (or USD 5.68) (steamdb link)

Open steam > Click: Publisher link > Click: Option (Gear Icon) > Click: Ignore this creator

Because, you know my peasant money ain't worth it.

p/s: GoL users, I will not arguing "the cuts" with all of you guys because already disproven by almost everyone inside and outside of community.
