  • maui-linux

    .NET MAUI is the .NET Multi-platform App UI, a framework for building native device applications spanning mobile, tablet, and desktop.

    I'm really hoping that .NET MAUI helps with this: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/maui/what-is-maui. AFAIK they're only focused on Windows, MacOS, Android and iOS at the moment though - No Linux support. Linux support would likely be a community addition. There's a fork at https://github.com/jsuarezruiz/maui-linux that has Linux support using GtkSharp, but I'm not sure of the current state of things.

  • proton-ge-custom

    Compatibility tool for Steam Play based on Wine and additional components

    As of today, more than 16,000 titles on Steam are officially compatible with Linux, with a lot more unofficially compatible using Proton-GE. Not to mention the literal millions of retro games you can play perfectly on emulators (Retroarch, MAME, Dolphin, DOSBox etc work perfectly). You certainly cannot claim that three is a lack of games on Linux.

  • lutris

    Lutris desktop client in Python / PyGObject

    2) Easy to install. Besides Steam (which is also on Windows), Linux has Lutris that makes it easy to one-click install and play games from multiple stores like GOG, Humble Bundle, Epic and even Steam, all in one-interface. It also interfaces with game emulators so you can play retro games in one interface. Finally it makes it easy to install games with multiple DLCs/expansion packs/mods, for instance to get a modern version of Diablo 1, it automatically downloads and installs (via GOG) Diablo, Hellfire expansion, DevilutionX and sets it all up so you don't have to do anything. Lutris makes it incredibly convenient to play games that aren't on Steam.
