I’m less excited about the deck itself than the possible implications that it will have on game compatibility on linux. Particularly anti-cheat which it looks like Valve is working to resolve by launch. If I am able to play my favorite multiplayer games on linux I’m saying goodbye to windows forever.

Valve has a good reason to love Linux: free OS means more money for games.

This is huge, even if game developers only start testing if their game runs on proton it’s a big step in the right direction.

Gaming on the GNU/Linux operating system.
