    Because Windows doesn't provide a service for updating 3rd party software. This feature would provide a level of convenience for Linux users that would make Steam far superior under Linux when...

  7. Missing control panel settings

    I noticed when I went to a conference recently that the Linux drivers lack the ability to set the display offset and overscan settings. It would be really great if they would add these options, as...
