        Even on desktop Linux it's quite slow for now. It's weird because it feels snappier on the Steam Deck.
        Well it's still a beta, so wait and see.

            I've always found Big Picture to be very slow. Have to use it every once in a while to change my gamepad configuration. It's barely usable.

              Proper SteamOS 3 (sorry HoloISO) and HDR support and will finally be able to retire windows from my gaming PC.

                This has not been my experience but heh. I use RADV on a Radeon VII, and I've got heaps of memory, so maybe that's it.

                  Perhaps it settles after a while. I only load it, change the gamepad config and exit. And it takes FOREVER to load, then it stutters a little bit and then it gets about fluent.
