    Good to see that Logitech will be finally supporting higher resolutions on Linux. The funny thing is that I have been stuck on their default Linux resolution for so long that when I use my mouse with a higher resolution on Windows, I am unable to move it with nearly the same accuracy.

    It plays well for all proton and steam native games I have for now
    That's cool to hear. I'm stuck with the first generation of Xbox one controller, so no wireless functionality for me.

    The Xbone Controller is the most problematic controller in terms of game support, of the five different ones I have. It is worse even than the Dual Shock 4. But that is mostly on indie and/or older games.

    It also have a flawed D-Pad design, prone to malfunctions. Too bad because is have one of the nicest ergonomics of the modern controllers.

    Unfortunately, the most problem free controller, the wired XB360, is apparently not manufactured anymore and most you can find are faked Chinese ones.
    It is more like a flawed ecosystem altogether, lack of a standard. SDL tries to solve this, but not everything uses SDL. And those that don't, have to support every controller separately. Then comes the usual issue of being unable to support future hardware.

    This is solved by Directx and Directinput/Xinput in Windows. Games made 15 years ago have no issue supporting the latest xbone controller, as they have no idea, all they see is a directinput or xinput interface. On the other hand, in Linux, games tend to statically link ancient SDL versions, distros tend to ship ancient SDL versions, Steam itself ships ancient SDL versions, and supporting future hardware through evdev is pretty much impossible, as it doesn't provide a standard interface.

    Yeah... A lot of people, myself included, so before you go insulting people and calling them lame, you should shut up.

    Appreciate that Logitech update. I'll look for the difference once this comes to Tumbleweed!
