LINUX GAMING --
After announcing Amazon Luna back in 2020 as their cloud gaming service, today Amazon officially rolled it out to all US users. With this launch also comes a limited, rotating selection of games free to Amazon Prime members.

Amazon Luna is the company's cloud gaming service akin to Google Stadia and others. Some games are available free to Amazon Prime members and rotates out on a monthly basis - this month includes games like Devil May Cry 5 and Observer. Besides desktop web browsers, Luna can be used from iPhone and Android devices. Aside from the free channel to Amazon Prime members, Luna+ costs $5.99 per month or the family channel at $2.99 per month.

Amazon Luna does leverage Linux for their cloud services and was hiring last year for DXVK, Mesa, and Proton developers.
