@cobra2 Yep, good policy. I avoided the PS4 because I was angry that it had no backwards compatibility. But since then, Steam on Linux has solved most of my gaming requirements. Now I'm really only looking at a PS4 (or 5?) for co-op stuff with my partner.
@cobra2 No, I wasn't quick enough. I figured I had plenty of time to dual boot it, and then woke up one morning to the news that Sony had disabled the feature and was being sued in a class action lawsuit. I think some lawyer somewhere actually owes me $21 or whatever it was.
Anyway, I bought it to actually play games, so I wasn't really too upset.
@cobra2 I did't realise they were NZ-based. Crazy!
I'll check it out. I've heard from @garpu that it's pretty great. I think she plays it on Slackware.
WINE and Proton have been treating me pretty well (Bioshock Enhanced editions notwithstanding, but it's definitely getting me and my partner through Harry Potter Lego pretty nicely).
@cobra2 @klaatu OH yeah. I play on Slackware and I've played a hell of a lot of Path of Exile. I was on slackware 14.2, but am now on current because of some hardware changes. I've used both proton and wine-staging, and I don't think I needed to install anything out of the ordinary to get it to work. (DXVK and python 3 for proton on 14.2.)
