Thank the heavens an Appimage is provided, only having a flatpak would be horrible beyond words. Appimage ftw.

Quoting: sudoerWindows 95 was the continuation of 3.11 (a tiling window-manager) on top of MS-DOS which was developed strictly for the PC in mind, as single-user, single-tasking and not network-aware.
I don't want to argue about off topic issues in article comments but what the heck have you been smoking and where can I get some? Come on dude. Nobody here likes M$ or Windoze but let's stick with facts.

EA anticheat arrives for Battlefield V in April, will break it on Linux / Steam Deck

Quoting: KimyrielleWon't affect me personally
And what if EA forces this crap into every title they ever published or developed? Will you be affected then? We already saw Capcom try this song and dance number, randomly breaking things because reasons.

Regardless of who is personally affected, moves like these are disasters for Linux gaming as well as the entire gaming industry. DRM is cancer, retroactively forcing it on older titles is despicable and anti-consumer to a degree most companies can't even bring themselves to think about. And then we have the "Triple A" monsters...

Quoting: dpanterWould love to see the project reach a reliably playable state.
I believe it is. I played through the entire campaign and a tiny bit of multiplayer, no issues encountered that I can remember.

It absolutely was not, prior to this patch. The Linux native version in particular has been cursed for years.

Respawn release statement and update on the Apex Legends hacking situation

So it's not EAC's fault and it's also not Apex Legends fault? Or... how is this message supposed to be interpreted? Doesn't seem like an admission of fault, more like Respawn saying "we're just gonna fix some stuff don't worry about it oh also some people were hacked or whatever probably random and unrelated dw gyze lol"
