    And you do realise that Steam Deck does not run KDE Plasma in game mode, right?

    in terms of this asus rog device specifically... this is probably another situation where certain aspects of r2r legislation would help consumers in terms of proprietary windows only vendor drivers. having more open hardware and access to chips, schematics around whatever is being used for the closed power management ics etc. and so on. because lets face it asus likes their proprietary in house chips. irog and all of that nonsense. we have seen from them for many yeats

    looking more broadly in the market this new amd apu soc will probably become in other competitor devices and get great linux support for steamos. so no worries about that aspect. and you know, maybe some other brand will actually include a touch screen while they are at it. not sure why asus did not... a bit of a clanger that on imho. and enough reason not to get this device. at least to wait until there is a new product with touchscreen

    and thats about all i have to say. oh and the blatant m$ kickbacks and absurd windows software. what level headed person would even want to get involved anything with that. a total clown show. maybe eu should come after them for that or have something relevant / worthwhile to say

    right to repair guys. right to repair. right to repait. even if it isn't broke yet

    dolby atmos is a nice feature. maybe linux will support it in a decade or two

    Price is also higher by about the same amount performance is higher. A year later and 0 additive economic value for consumers.

    Personally I had no issues with Steam Deck in regards to these kind of problems. It depends on the games of course. For me Windows only reduces UX/UI experience by a lot. Also, some SD-specific features like suspending games won't work there.

    1080p is useless for this size of a display. Wasted battery and performance. I really hope Valve won't do the same for Steam Deck 2.

    I don't see this being neither useful nor popular feature. The main point of a handheld PC is mobility and gaming on-the-go. In any other use-case desktop or notebook is far more superior device in pretty much anything.


    Steam Deck is not perfect, but the base model still offers the best value and Steam OS 3.x is still superior console-like experience in comparison to Windows consoles.

    • No Linux kernel!
    • No Mesa drivers!
    • No KDE Plasma!
    And it also comes with the closed source, spyware infested and bloatware Windows.

    So it's definitely a no thanks for me!

    You know IOS-XE and IOS-XR run on top of linux right?

    I play on my PC only on the gamepad without trackpads.

    What am I doing wrong? Because I understand that without trackpads it should not be possible to play?

    Nintendo Switch, most popular console, also has trackpads of course? Right? ​
