Anybody getting one or already have one? I've pre-ordered it and mine is due to become available for purchase in Q3 of this year. Kind of on the fence about following through with it though. I don't like Linux much because of all the command line crap that I have 0 interest in learning, but if I stick strictly to gaming and only on Steam, it should probably be fine. I had planned on putting Windows 11 on mine, but between the fact that Valve has some pre-compiled shader stuff going on in Proton that's specifically optimized for the Deck and greatly increases its performance, and the fact that AMD/Valve's Windows drivers for the Deck seem to suck and probably aren't a priority at all, Windows on Deck seems like a bad idea.
Still, I watched a video of a guy playing Company of Heroes on it, and it seems like it might not actually be the worst thing in the world for RTS games like I had thought. And it would be cool to be able to play stuff like that wherever.
