I will start willing to admit that I know for a fact most people will just shrug it off violently, bringing heavyweight arguments and very solid points that this is outrageous. Even call me or the very idea preposterous. And how this topic was discussed so many times. And you are right, my fellow gurus. But hear me out. Since last year, I followed some developments on gaming, but not particularly on Windows platforms. And some very smart people foresaw maybe something similar to Google's Stadia, but astoundingly similar. When Stadia was announced, I was amazed, this is where the paradigm shift starts. More so, Steam's Proton API is another factor adding up to the title's statement. Yes, Valve knows way better where the money comes from - Windows platform-but they want and actively develop an alternative gaming platform that is based on Vulkan and Open GL. Now, Google's Stadia is making a very heavy statement - we can offer gaming to masses without Windows. Yes, as consoles do, but not all consoles are using DirectX. Not a solid argument here, but somehow they can influence some people: Goofy and cringy as it is, there are some valid points and very easy to understand concepts. And make people search for and discover new stuff. Some serious help for gaming on Linux More serious opinion on Linux gaming from the Wendell from Level1 tech channel This guy knows what is what and their forum is "steaming" with topics about gaming on Linux. Sometimes, change comes ever so slightly, so easy to miss. Remember how many things that now we are taking as normal were ridiculous way back when they were announced? Among some many things we are willing to have a more open mind, maybe is time to reconsider the next gaming platform or a solid alternative? Please, let's keep it civil folks, no calling names, no personal attacks, and fanboyism. Have an opinion? All right, bring it on! Let's have an academic discussion, and make this forum even better. Cheers!
