And people think it's close to being ready for a gaming desktop replacement, laughable.
I think it could be if people would be fine with a steamOS like setup. However I'm not satisfied with how SteamOS is setup and just generally run a regular Distribution with the Steam client. And honestly I'm liking the new found love Linux has been getting in the game industry, hopefully it may lead to something good. Yes it can be a bit of work, but to me that is part of the process and it has been getting easier over the last several years tremendously.

But honestly gaming or not I've been using Linux for years to get away from Windows and Microsoft products. Microsoft lately has been the biggest malware provider period.

Seriously, for Mac? Why bother? Its not like will run on anything less than a Mac Pro. The iMac and the Macbooks are way to underpowered to even run this.
Do Apple Fanatics even buy the lesser offerings?

Yeah, and you can do actual, real work on a PC as well, so why even bother with a console/gimped PC to begin with?
It's a good question, but almost all my friends play multiplayer games on consoles and that is where I ended up. I also don't like using gimped PCs so I'm a full time Linux user, this unfortunately limits the amounts of games I can play.

I think VR is still, as someone else said, at least 5-10 years out before it becomes viable for the mainstream. I've tried the Occulus with DK1 and I recently tried the Vive. They're just not comfortable with my glasses on and, even barring that, it just doesn't feel right to me. I can't shake the feeling that the perspective I am seeing is not my own so there's a disconnect for me.

I found the latest Occulus (CV1) to be comfortable with glasses. The games I did try seem to pull me in. Honestly I was a skeptic before, but now I can see the appeal.

Not sure who invest in a 13.3" chromebook when "real" computers are readily available.

That 3k ips display would fare better on a 15" or 17" Windows laptop and maybe they could even make it linux friendly.
Honestly I wouldn't mind a 13" chromebook at work, I'm constantly moving around and even my 15" laptop is a burden with everything else I need to carry. That said, I'm not sure the benefit of a 3K screen would be on a screen that small.

It's fun to play every once and a while just when I feel like playing something Skyrimish that isn't Skyrim. since I don't play it often, I haven't exhausted the content on the primary game so not bad for a game without a monthly subscription.

News Comments > Steam Running on Android
8. Re: Steam Running on Android Mar 22, 2016, 16:44 Trashy
 
Exagear I know provides a fairly decent x86 emulation layer. I've use Exagear Desktop on native armhf linux via an ARM cortex-A15 development board to provide an x86 debian solution which then allowed me to run the linux version of steam. I've also used it to play x86 games via WINE. It's definitely doesn't have that great performance, but allowed some Windows games in the early to mid 2000's to play.

Qemu is another solution, however that project spends more time on precision vs performance.

This might single-handedly turn the fail that is SteamOS into a real Windows killer for games. Thoughts?

Screw SteamOS. I don't want games to be cross platform or otherwise not locked to Windows just to end up using some SteamOS crap (like Valve doesn't want to lock people into their garden).


Don't use SteamOS then, you can just use regular Linux Steam on any flavor of Linux you choose. SteamOS is essentially just bigmode running on top of a Debian Jessie. Only real benefit is some preconfiguration of video drivers and controller support. Although it's still pretty rough honestly, some of the way it's configured is pretty hacky, I much rather just use one of the major Linux istributions.

Anyone using steamOS? I never saw the big advantage in it myself.
No one's actually meant to use it. It's intended to be a threat to wield against Microsoft.
Not actually using SteamOS itself, just using regular Debian running the Linux version of Steam. SteamOS is basically just Debian with a more rigid and annoying configuration.

I've purged Windows from my life and can manage just fine PC gaming wise. Maybe not be able to hit VR level performances anytime soon.

They NEED to bring George back just for the story if nothing else.

As long as he doesn't have direct access to casting and directing. Also there are other creative minds out there that can handle a good story.
