    why not just use dxvk and relevant wine code to run your game without any vm?
    Not everything works under Wine, unfortunately.

      chromeOS runs linux binaries in a debian VM. steam will run within the debian VM, or spin up a separate one specifically for steam. not sure which one. but if steam has its own binary, it does make it nice to keep everything consolidated and neat from the chrome app store I guess? but in the end it doesn't really matter. as this work isn't really relevant for steam, but rather future extensibility.

      if anything, the closest benefit that would be achieved would be android VM. whether it be in ChromeOS or any other virtio-gpu. as GFXstream, the only immediate candidate for this that I know of, only currently supports android. Mesa has no support for it at the moment.

        chances are it will not work under "dxvk and relevant wine code" either

          well to be fair, anyone with a windows install can verify that by simply dumping the dxvk binaries in the app folder and it should use it.
