    A pity Painkiller Hell and Damnation isn't available DRM-free. I'm playing now the first game (GOG version in Wine).

    May be they can open source Unreal Engine 1? Then may be someone can finish porting Deus Ex to Linux.

    What about non Steam users? Is it locked into using Steamworks or there will be a Steam-free version of the client as well?

    You mean x86 driver or the ARM one? x86 has EGL for Xorg, not for Wayland. So that doesn't help. libEGL is display server specific, it's not a generic library.

    Kite: I explained how this can be proven. Games are pirated widely with DRM being broken almost right away after the release. If you aren't aware of that - go and check. Some developers even bring...

    Let proponents of DRM prove that DRM prevent piracy - they won't be able to find any proof. Counter proof is trivial. Check any game which comes with DRM and compare it to pirated versions which...

    I know history. Stalin was supportive of it, but he didn't care about either way. He had no clue about science. Lysenko was the author and the main driver behind it. Do you homework first. It's not...

    Virtually none. Cracked games appear in a very short time after releases of DRMed games and are pirated ever since. DRM can even boost piracy, since cracking it can be viewed as sport, while DRM-free...

    Temar: I'm talking about those at the head who were pushing for this (and they were scientists supposedly, so one could argue they had to know better: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trofim_Lysenko)....

    Yes, those are morons and there is nothing to look for there except for stupidity. Soviet science for a long time had an enforced view of Lysenkoism. According to your logic, they weren't supposed to...

    Ubisoft is notorious for DRM, but there are a few of their games available DRM-free on GOG. I wouldn't buy any of their games with DRM for sure.

    I think their key idea was evenly spreading the load from the period of freeze itself to the constant keeping of packages in close to releasable state. I.e. working gradually rather than accumulating...
