    Mobox doesn't "use" a bridge - it's an optional install, completely up to you if you wait to use it or not. I play with an external controller so I don't install it.

    As for the wine/dxvk issues, I've been asking for help around this since Winlator v1.0 (on the EmuGear Discord) and no one has been able to solve my issues - and the unanimous advice has been to use Mobox instead.

    In some ways I see it as a good thing. The non-technical consumers will flood to a company who can spoonfeed them support for the product whilst taking pressure off the open-source project developers to actually do a good job and further the industry correctly.
    It can be libre/open source and they can still sell it on the PlayStore, non-technical consumers will mainly get it via this avenue so open sourcing it doesn't look like a hindrance to having people working on it as a job.

    They spend the best part of a decade building Fuchsia, and now, at the point of beta release, they can it.

    They really are demented.
    If I rember right google did kick almost all dev from Fuchsia.
    google have remove all Fuchsia code from Chrome so it can not be build or runing on fuchsia anylonger

    Shame that its closed source but as long as they uphold their "upstreaming necessary changes" this can nonetheless be a benefit.

    Would be interesting to leverage FEX on power efficient ARM laptops if you want to game on them, i.e. either with Asahi for Mac devices or standard Linux for high end ARM laptops which hopefully should start coming out soon.
    I still don't see why one would get excited for something like cassia and not winlator, especially when afaict winlator is 90% open source with some predone tarballs (which need investigating). But personally im more excited for FEX/Box{86,64} on riscv

    Hey, as long as it gives consumer-protection regulations more time to catch up.

    Bearing in mind that, before Google joined in on tightening their belt, there were signs they wanted to solve the "closed-source drivers plus Linux means update hell" problem by switching out the Linux kernel for Fuchsia and telling people "We never claimed anything outside the Dalvik layer was anything but an internal, API-unstable implementation detail".
