It’s interesting how Linux gaming culture has changed. If I break up commercial Linux gaming into two generations, the first being Loki Software’s inception through its demise and when id Software (Dave Taylor, TTimo) offered Linux ports of several of its games, and the second generation beginning with Humble Bundle and Desura through to the present dominated by Steam, there was a time in the second generation circa 2012-2015 when many voices in the Linux gaming community jeered at Wine and wrapper layers (<strong>regardless of performance</strong>). Where are they now? Probably blithely using Proton.
