Okay I'm watching the linux daily driver challenge from Linus's tech tips and I have a question

Is it really that difficult to install steam on an Ubuntu-based distro?

Asking because on Arch and Manjaro I only ever needed to install both the native and the runtime version. Which admittedly may be confusing to newcomers. But it certainly never tried to completely remove my desktop environment. Why would that even ever happen?

I hate to admit that they do make some good points about linux, the developers and the community in the video. I think the biggest part for me was the condescending tone in the community forums and the often super confusing UIs. Those are huge problems that have to be fixed, best by yesterday

As others have pointed out before me though, some of the points in that video aren't valid criticisms of linux; they are criticisms of Discord, of Github, and of the hardware vendors that refuse to properly support linux

@schratze i love when companies are like, we just use Linux to run, test, build and distribute all our software, but we can't support it as a user platform

@schratze and the irony of course is that supporting Linux will get you to produce better software: reddit.com/r/linux_gaming/comm
because many Linux users know how to report useful bugs.

that irony is perhaps multifaceted: if other people's computers weren't expensive toys or kafkaesque process machines, maybe they too could do that??
