    Don't wonder when your bug report gets closed as it will be a duplicate of this "closed" bug: https://github.com/ValveSoftware/ste...time/issues/13

      I know Michael has been limited by Windows in this case, but has anybody tested the beta driver with actual games on Linux - CS, Bioshock?

        I tried the PRO driver out before but didn't work on my 16.04 install, guessing you need to regress the kernel back to 4.2 for it to work.

For example, small "streaming" Linux programs such as 'cat', 'tr', 'tail', or small programs such as 'cron' and 'sleep', fall into this category.
          Well,. it does force you to install a bunch of 32bit libraries which may come with vulnerabilities on their own. There are worse things in life, true, but this still qualifies as an unnecessary annoyance.

            In real life, we play (games that can require power from CPU/GPU stuffs and can be evaluated on windows and linux -and even mac-):
            - on steam: Civ V/beyond Earth, Borderland 2, Medieval: Chivalry, CS:GO, Ark:Survival, Portal2, L4D2, XCOM2, Bioshock:infinite, Middle EArth:Shadow of Mordor, Mediaval: Total War 2 ...
            - with GOG games: Witcher2, Pillar of eternity, Divinity:OS, Wasteland 2, Mount&Blade:warband, SubLevelZero, SuperHot, FireWatch
            - with Unreal Tournament 4: https://www.epicgames.com/unrealtour...l=1#post191678

            I hope that Mickael will test that kind of games one day ^^

              But this is still the #1 place to go for linux benchmark results and therefore influential. When people consider Linux and read about drawbacks like poor gaming capabilities, they search the web for confirmation. They lose their interest and developers/publishers don't get interested at all. So imho, good results are important to see here
              It's unfortunate that Benchmarks are more important to people than Privacy and Security.

                He does only test what can be tested automated from the command line.
                Also, it's not only the selection of games that makes the tests less meaningful. FPS numbers don't say anything at all about smoothness and feeling. A better metric are frametimes and even better is a deeper analysis, but that's nothing I am remotely asking for here.

                You don't have to be that bitter when the world is not that black/white. You can still have privacy and security, use Linux in your everyday life and play games on Windows.

                  Why? Has your video card been spying on you? Emptied your bank account?

                    That is the case for 75% of installations yes... and 64 bits OS makes things even more worse...

                      Please read the Steam statistics about hardware first. Then write.
