Do you use Steam on Ubuntu? You may have to switch to a new Linux distro in the future. A Valve developer announced that Steam won’t officially support Ubuntu 19.10 or future releases. Ubuntu-based Linux distributions are also affected.

This is all because Canonical announced plans to drop 32-bit packages and libraries from Ubuntu 19.10. These packages enable 32-bit software to run on 64-bit versions of Ubuntu.

While most Linux applications will get along just fine, this is a huge blow to Valve’s Steam. Many Linux games on Steam are only available in 32-bit form—they work on 64-bit Linux distributions, but only with the 32-bit libraries. As Phoronix recently pointed out, this also affects the Wine compatibility layer that allows running Windows software on Linux—Wine won’t be able to run 32-bit Windows software anymore. Steam’s compatibility layer for running Windows games on Linux would also not work for 32-bit games.

After Canonical’s announcement, Valve’s Pierre-Loup Griffais tweeted that Ubuntu 19.10 and future releases “will not be officially supported by Steam or recommended to our users.” Valve will officially support and recommend a different Linux distribution in the future.

Gee, if only someone had warned us about the dangers of proprietary software.

What kind of annoucement? SteamOS is based on Debian, not Ubuntu, so it doesn't really matter what Canocial does. The real problem is that a lot of people are using Ubuntu as if it was the only distro.



So, um, does everyone pile into Manjaro now?


good, ubuntu is for techie goyim that believe linux is reduced to just that.





definitely no collusion occuring here



no one actually gives a shit about ubuntu anymore, except for Mint



>people are using Ubuntu as if it was the only distro.

The problem is Ubuntu is, or was, widely supported, easy to install and anything that required manual configuration, a multistep procedure or obscure problem would have been answered in the forums already. However, fedora and to some extent, arch branches are covering that base now.

But I have to say; if anyone is running Ubuntu as a desktop OS they should be able to just passthrough their VGA adapters & have a KVM running windows whatever if their hardware supports it. I mean for fucks sake steamOS can run fucking ubuntu in a VM too making the whole "I need Ubuntu" a obviated problem.


This is really fucking stupid but completely unsurprising by the talentless hacks currently employed there. They wanted to push Linux hard after Windows 10 walled garden horse shit but now that Microsoft has agreed to finally put their games on Steam they're just dropping it entirely. Wouldn't be shocked if Microsoft paid them to make this decision. But I also wouldn't be surprised if they came to this decision themselves because they simply don't know what the fuck they're doing.


> muh open source

> uses closed source rootkit/spyware Steam

> doesn't read privacy policies

Steam fingerprints your hardware, habits, PII, and collects and shares everything you do on their platform - including your internet history - with third parties. There is no opt-out. Moreover they will lock out certain features if you attempt to protect your privacy

Steam continually "phones home" and requires and internet connection to upload all your datas.


whats the fucking point?

Steamfags should stop deluding themselves and just use windoze

Everyone else at the very least should be running all of their apps/games in LXD and/or Docker containers with GPU pass-through

Also fuck SystemD and Pulseaudio.

Poettering is a colossal faggot shill

Use Hardened Gentoo with Docker and/or LXD if you want any level of privacy and security.

OpenBSD is legit too. Theo de Raadt is pretty based and hasn't been cucked yet.
