Have an exciting project to share or a problem that you are trying to solve?

This is a general open thread to talk about what you're working on - or want to work on!

Feel free to share ideas, ask for help, or just fill us in on your cool project :)

Anything goes in terms of topics, just as long as it is STEM-related.

At work, when I come back from maternity leave, I'll be working on protecting customers from deleting their own servers. ;)

At home, I'm always working with lutris to add more games on linux

Doing the goddess' work :)

Do you create your own games or are you importing existing games, or both?

I can't code in anything but bash lol! My husband is the programmer in the family, I'm the sysadmin. ;) I just tinker with wine and lutris.

GloriousEggroll is the person in charge of lutris and has a patreon if you wanna support him. He's a good guy for the community overall (no sexism, no gatekeeping) and works at Red Hat.

Between Proton and Lutris, all my games work on Linux.

Cool! Curious about the sorts of games-- I don't play modern games much any more, so the gaming I've done on linux has been limited to running ps1 games on an emulator via wine. So I was under the impression it was still tough to get modern games working, but maybe things have improved?

Modern games are, honestly, easier than emulators via wine.

Most games on steam work on Linux, either natively or via Proton

The big exception are esports type games cause they typically have an anti cheat installed to deliberately disable the game if it detects linux. Because those few games are some of the most popular, we get a bad rep still. But it's really not many games.

Among Us is either platinum or gold.
