    Phoronix: Valve Continued Doing A Lot For Linux Gaming & Open-Source Radeon Drivers In 2020

    Valve this year continued contributing significantly to not only improving the Linux gaming experience but also the Linux desktop at large with their continued open-source graphics driver enhancements and other infrastructure work...

    Valve did a lot, but they took a lot. They are the 30% middle-men. So yeah, ACO and proton (which is a clone of lutris, IMO). But they do take 30% of all games sold.

      AMD: opensources their driver
      Everyone: loves AMD
      Valve: funds development of cool features for AMD driver

      NVIDIA: being a d***s with their driver
      Everyone: f**k you NVIDIA
      Nobody: does nothing for them

      ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

        Are you for real? About the only think Proton and Lutris have in common is...well...Lutris is a Game Launcher and Steam is a Game Launcher each with the ability to play Windows games through custom emulation layers based on Wine. IMHO, Lutris has a slight edge for the more advanced user due to allowing one to choose their own custom Wine runners, Steam and Proton is just fine for those that just want to play a game with no more mess or fuss than someone on Windows.

        Proton is merely Wine (Staging)+Extra Shit For Games from Valve. Nothing more, nothing less.

        Lutris is a full blown game launching center that covers everything from emulation to Windows games and can even use Proton because Proton is just a custom Wine runner when one gets down to it.

          They do not take 30% of all games sold:

          At least you should not spread lies.

            Lutris is great but in the most cases nothing for rookies. Steam on the other hand (not fully comparable but there is some overlap) is very easy for the average joe just switching from windows world.

              Linux gaming has to be promoted much more. Above all in gaming fairs demonstrating how is better the Linux desktop proposal in gaming such as simple is the installation of a Linux operating system. The major issue actually is Linux operating systems stability environment in the huge heterogeneous hardware settings, the different way hardware gets software stack support, and the obsolescence of X11 as well. The first aim is to get stability and efficience in managing the hardware resources, the second one is to switch to wayland abandoning the graphical stack obsolescence as soon as possible. SteamOS is a great improvement because Linux has a specialized OS in gaming.

                i bought DayZ Standalone this winter sale and it does not work on Fedora33 with TR 1920X and Vega64
                it is same engine like Arma3 but ARMA3 is working it is the launcher what is broken
                the standard launcher is even bad on windows so my windows friends use another launcher.

                they claim linux support will become better if you buy more as a linux user but o bought many games and many games do not work.

                for example i bought every carmageddon max damange/reincernation game and it does not work.

                would be happy to play all my 250 steam games on linux but reality is another story.

                  Proton is a Wine Distro
                  Lutris is a Games Launcher
                  They share nothing technically.

                  Lutris came after Proton too.

                  30% is a more then fair amount for a publisher, publishing costs a lot.

                    Without Valve we would get some random ports of indie games, one AAA game a year. Wine would work with some older games and performance would be bad. You jump to the time how it was before VALVE begat carrying Linux
