I really wish developers would start taking Linux gaming more seriously. If it weren't for the fact most games don't play nice with it I'd be using Linux distro's exclusively. That said, I'm playing far less games than I used to, so maybe I can get a collection together that do play nice and leave Windows behind forever.

Think most all of us feel that way hopefully one day linux will take over as the gaming choice.

What a stupid thing to make mandatory. The webcam in my laptop quit working awhile back, wonder if that will stop it from upgrading to 11.

I wonder how long it takes for the EU takes this up with Microsoft, even so, i will not be upgrading straight away, if at all for the time being, windows 10 is serving me well enough for now.

Did some digging. This appears to be fake news.

It's only mandatory that a new laptop has a camera for it to work. It says nothing at all about desktops.

And it doesn't come into force until 2023.

That's in Tom's article in the screenshot:

"*Starting from January 1, 2023, all Device Types except Desktop PC, are required to have Forward-facing camera..."
