agreed. I have to disable most all telemetry to get my mini pc to be quiet 99% of the time, else it's ALWAYS doing unasked for diagnostics/telemetry ( I have watched it extensively in Resource Manager, I hate them so much for this cursed os)My response to, “Windows is a bit rough around the edges on Steam Deck”, is that Windows is rough on any system that it runs on. Just because desktop/ laptops have ample of processing power to hide the inefficiencies of the OS, thus, we don’t see it as a big problem.
This is very strange to me. Like living in an alternate reality. Valve has, whether through just the simple/standard "we only support our stock factory settings" or a malicious anti-Microsoft viewpoint, put the shoe on the other foot.Windows, by contrast, doesn't have the same support, and Valve says it won't be providing it. It works, and some games even run better on it. But you'll have to jump through more hoops to make it work.
You drunk? It's gonna take years of high volume sales before the deck becomes significant.This may be the first time a Windows user, on a significant platform
Linux handles dual boot just fine and there are also stand alone boot managers that can handle it.I wonder if it would be possible to dual boot by first installing steamOS, and then installing Windows afterwards, since Windows does support dual booting and can partition drives for tht.
If you install Windows and use a keyboard and mouse with a monitor, it'll have a desktop windows experience. Same for the OneXPlayer. Why limit your view?I don't think people who buy a Deck are actually looking for a desktop Windows experience--uh, mainly because the Steamdeck isn't a desktop--not even close, imo.
