    I haven't been keeping up but is there some advanced option in Steam on Linux to force download windows games on linux so I can run them on wine?

    Hate to say it, but knowing the build quality of Nvidia's proprietary drivers releases, they probably won't release them untill mir/wayland is solid released and out in the wild first, then they can...

    I know there are linux alternatives, but to some users iTunes is a must have app. So no iTunes under linux means they won't even consider trying linux.

    I'm curious if the mac version of itunes...

    I think at the time they said this Wayland was still in it's infancy (just announced) and I'm pretty sure they didn't want to commit any resources to a replacement for Xorg that may have not panned...

    I don't really care about all the politics involved but if Canonical can get AMD and Nvidia onboard with propritary driver support for whatever replaces the aging Xorg, I'm all for it.

    While I can't argue with your statistics, I can say that WoW runs very well on vanilla wine such that I question how many of those people using vanilla wine for WoW aren't counted. I do however...

    Heh, I was wondering the same thing till I was glancing thru the release notes.

    Meh, this just looks like a case of excited users and maintainers getting way ahead of the lawyers and legalese. Things should cooldown and fall into order in a few months once Valve gets their...

    Awesome, thanks for the update! I had looked for them 2 weeks ago and found the same old coming soon blah.

    I don't think Valve just orders their engineers to just make stuff work, well not without a good reason to. There's a interesting blog post by Valve’s Michael Abrash where he says that Valve has no...

    I suppose it's kinda hard to say at this early juncture. They could make Steam check the proprietary drivers and if it only find the open ones just pop up a message that game performance will be...

    It doesn't seem so much as Ubuntu trying to make Valve/Steam a Ubuntu exclusive but more like asking what will it take to get Steam successfully launched on Ubuntu aka the most popular linux desktop...

    Interesting article on comparing how shear cpu power has evolved over the last 30 years. Kinda makes you wonder where it will be in the next 30.

    As long as Nvidia at least keep legacy linux support equal to the legacy windows drivers, I really can't complain. For 7+ year old cards all I really need is 2d support for the most part for old...
