    @Micheal,
    can you please do something?
    anyone can do some shit posting/talking sometimes but this is pure/heavy/systematic trolling at the expense of the community.

    Thanks

      Yeah, they sure take their sweet time giving everyone a chance to fill out the survey. Been a Steam member since 2013 and they only picked me once, in 2014.

        Yes, the point is that even with SteamPlay, it's a little bit more involved than clicking install and playing the game, so the user friendliness isn't there. I guess the only safe assumption to make is that average users are brain dead, and anything more involved than that is too much.
        I don't think the average gamer is an average user. The majority of gamers using Steam, Epic Store, etc. are quite skilled, actually. That said, they should enable SteamPlay by default (with the option of turning it off).

          Yes, you are here to promote Windows.


          Also, this one makes no sense at all:

          Wayland works through rasterization of pixels which brings about two very bad critical problems which will never be solved

            Is there an official statement how Steam Survey counts Windows games played under Proton in Linux: as a Linux session, or as a Windows session?

            Exists there reliable data showing how Steam Proton market share compares to market share of native Linux ports?

              It is possible that Steam is aggregating RX 470/480/570/580/590 into a single Linux GPU category: RX 480

                That is only known to the publishers so there we have to wait until some of them releases such data if ever (and then we would only know the stats for that very publisher). That said there are official statements from Valve that playing with Proton will be recorded as a Linux sale and not a Windows sale.

                  I've been posting this link for almost 10 years now - has anything changed since then? Not really. All the primary issues remain. Three bugs leading to catastrophic data loss for the past 12 months in the Linux kernel? That's for the worse, unfortunately.

                  Promote Windows? LOL. Have you actually been to this "bad" website? There's a nice article about Windows on it as well. Though not nearly as long and disparaging.

                  Makes no sense at all? You mean facts don't make sense to you? Well, that's not my problem - that's yours.

                  Try harder next time.

                    Wayland clients talk to the compositor and request a buffer. The compositor will hand them back a buffer that they can draw into, using OpenGL, cairo, or whatever. The compositor is at the discretion to do whatever it wants with that buffer – display it normally because it’s awesome, set it on fire because the application is being annoying, or spin it on a cube because we need more YouTube videos of Linux cube spinning.


                    Buffer is a 2D plane/array made of pixels.

You just cannot expect people to move to an OS with so many wonderful features and quirks.

                      Say, you want to have something very simple akin to Windows file sharing in Linux. How would you do that? There are many other petty little things which might look insignificant but people depend their lives on them.
                      can you please join and troll another community?
                      nobody is forcing you to use the sucking ass OS and with every of your posts you are constantly annoying other forum users. This is a community for Linux enthusiasts and, believe of not, we all know that in some areas Linux might (still) "sucks" ass, we (as enthusiasts) don't care of simply get over it (many work for free to improve the status quo). I'm tired of feeding the (you) troll but if you're so frustrated just enjoy what you've got (Mac, Win, Whatever OS). Your constant whinging is not a contribution
