The video game world is interested in the GNU / Linux world, as we have already been announcing in many of the LxA articles. But the interest is mutual, they are also taking trouble from the world of distributions to try to continue attracting video game developers and improve their supports, graphics drivers, etc. And this news today is precisely to show the work that the project developers are doing SolusProject to improve in the field of video games.
From the official site of Solus, the famous distribution that we have talked about a lot, it has been announced by the developers who are working hard to improve Steam integration in their distribution and also working hard to adopt and implement support for snaps packages from Canonical to make things easier for videogame developers, so that the use of these universal packages is encouraged and that it is more attractive to just create one package than several of them… (DEB, RPM,…).
So in future versions o Solus releases We will see these improvements already in operation, so we will have to see how the Steam integration for multimedia and digital entertainment content has been improved and also how those snaps packs work. This is how they aim to position themselves as one of the best distributions for gaming, such as Valve's Steam OS, or Canonical's Ubuntu, among others, which are among the favorites on which to launch titles.
We have already seen how Steam OS It has also worked hard in these aspects, and especially in the field of drivers for GPUs and offering good performance. Although the truth is that Valve has an advantage and that is that they are the Steam developers and owners of the Steam video game store, therefore it is a good advantage.
