    I know I could just plug in an external keyboard and mouse, but I already have an adequate desktop computer for that.
    Liam over at Gaming On Linux have some hand issues that makes the Switch unbearable to use but the Deck does for some reason work quite well for him despite the larger size: https://www.gamingonlinux.com/2022/0...nitial-review/

        All games verified for Steam can be found at
        https://store.steampowered.com/greatondeck

        And there existing now a nice picture of the Docking Station for the Steam Deck by Valve called Steam Deck Dock.

        And Valve already plans Steam Deck Version 2.

        It will be much powerful then the first one, because the most buyed Steam Deck version is the top model, the 512 GB version.

          "the BIOS/firmware and bootloader are completely open"

          Is it coreboot? It doesn't seem to be coreboot. Don't think Valve is quite big enough to beat AMD into submission in that regard, that task will have to fall to Google.

            Yes, smart phone are ruined by Google's Android. This device is absolutely on right direction.
            And Linux is already ready for gaming. I only switch to Windows when some VR device not ye supported by Linux.

                  I appreciate the thought, but it won't work for my particular issue.

                    Interestingly enough the Steam Deck is relying on "acpi-cpufreq" instead of "AMD P-STATE" for its CPU driver, contrary to what was communicated months ago.

                    Guess the combination with "schedutil" as the intended governor is still a joke & something to be ashamed of...

                    And speaking of things to be ashamed of:

                    Slava Ukraini!
