Most of the games they feature are not rated all that well in proton so whatever changes they made to the latest SteamOS must be huge. I mean, the fact they moved to Arch (probably due to higher binary stability) is incredible.

I imagine it will be a good product overall, personally I wouldn't want it for AAA gaming or anything, but I have like 100+ indie games on my backlog still that have fps caps anyway... so this makes a lot of sense to play them on something like this in bed, or outside on the swing, relaxing in the sun...

gamers getting sun, PC edition ~
