This is incredible breaking news from last week.

Steam has been developing WINE, and named the new fork Proton. It is currently in Beta on Steam OS but it shows a commitment to Linux OS for playing games, and heritage games, that is just super exciting.

Windows games with no Linux version currently available can now be installed and run directly from the Linux Steam client, complete with native Steamworks and OpenVR support.
DirectX 11 and 12 implementations are now based on Vulkan, resulting in improved game compatibility and reduced performance impact.
Full-screen support has been improved: full-screen games will be seamlessly stretched to the desired display without interfering with the native monitor resolution or requiring the use of a virtual desktop.
Improved game controller support: games will automatically recognize all controllers supported by Steam. Expect more out-of-the-box controller compatibility than even the original version of the game.
Performance for multi-threaded games has been greatly improved compared with vanilla Wine.


Now, I am not certain how non-steam games will link into this, but from what I have read you will be able to mod/create your own versions of Proton.

Thank you....I'm always trying new vintages and producers but I admit this is a new one on me. It sounds like it must be a blend??

Cheers!
