Fast Company: Steam Deck proves game consoles don't need walled gardens. "The tech industry is filled with companies that seem deathly afraid of
this model, either because they don’t trust their users or don’t want to
risk weakening their own ecosystems. By taking the opposite approach, Valve
is proving that open platforms aren’t so catastrophic, and it elevates the
Steam Deck from yet another gadget into the most exciting consumer
electronics device in years."
