@Le_bottin_des_jeux_linux We can hope. But I don't know how likely that scenario is.

@Samsai I agree with you. For the platform to evolve, we need Linux development too. However, we can hope that with the availability of all Windows titles on Linux, the platform will attract more young people (and that we get out of the rut of less than 1% market share) who will statistically develop for their platform.

@Le_bottin_des_jeux_linux We are in a much better shape than in the 2000s because of these tools, indeed. But the maintenance of those tools will still require a steady flow of fresh developers to keep them from stagnating. My fear is that Linux will turn into a consumption-only platform when it comes to gaming, which would mean the development side stagnates and we fall behind. This would also cause hobbyists to remain on competing platforms.

@holarse Thank you very much for the clarification.
I'm clearly no smarter than I was before, but certainly more educatedπŸ˜‰.

@Samsai
What I don't think is so good is that the Linux game via Proton increases the dependency on Steam another notch and crushes the alternative stores a bit more.

@Samsai
Perhaps the future will prove you right, I hope not. Compared to the 2000's, we have better development tools (Godot, O3DE, ...) and infrastructures. And if Unity or Unreal let us down, others will take their place. The Linux desktop has never been so powerful, and if all games run on Linux via Proton, tons of hobbyists will join us & enrich us. I don't particularly like Proton, and I hope that Linux ports will continue, but Linux needs more users as much as new developers.
