Have you thanked valve for saving the Linux desktop by pouring money into Wine/DXVK development and making nearly of all bestselling games run perfectly under Linux?

>be me
>hardly ever play vidya anymore because I have to reboot into my windows partition and I can't multitask
>never tried wine because it was basically useless pre-2019
>now all my favorites play perfectly fine with some winetricks tweaks
I don't even have to install containerized bloat like bottles or lutris anymore because using a WINEPREFIX for every game is enough.

    Does it make professional applications run in Wine better or is it just games?

      games are the worst case scenario in hardware utilization and reliance on undocumented windows shit so if they work well on games, other programs should too

        Uhhh what? Games are a lot simpler than other software, all they want is D3D, XInput and XAudio2 most of the time.

      Frick no, all that shit is way more heavily tied into the OS and Windows than games are.
      Games mostly only need a good DirectX implementation, they otherwise use very little of the OS itself.
      Windows based professional software on the otherhand almost invariable makes heavy use of all manner of random, deprecated or poorly documented Windows functionality, much of which isn’t implemented in WINE. And most of it also runs like shit on Windows itself anyway

    DXVK is stupid, they should focus on reimplementing native D3D, like Gallium Nine

            You don't need steam to benefit, the changes went upstream into the wine project.

            There are performance benefits to using proton because Valve strips out a bunch of compatibility checks and conditions for Mac support, glorious eggroll's wine-custom is actually a fork from proton, so you can get all the benefits of proton outside of the steam client already.

      Proton is just wine that runs inside steam and has some game-specific patches/workaround

    Or you could just use a virtual machine under QEMU+KVM and avoid the problem altogether.

      Only worth it if you have 2 GPUs in your system and non-moronic IOMMU groups on your mobo so you can passthrough your good GPU to the guest OS, enjoy your performance loss, all that GPU writeback isn't free.

        Do you really need two GPU's? I thought one was enough?

          single GPU passthrough requires you to give control of the only GPU to the guest OS, it's basically dualbooting with extra steps because you can't actually use your host OS unless it's through SSH.

        It will be integrated with lutris and the other frontends but you can run it without them, it's essentially proton-ge without steam and a list of fixes that it applies to each game
