The Linux Innards
Our predictions for the new year
- Steam Deck will be a success and will contribute to the number of Linux machines in the wild
- The Chip shortage will continue and prices on computers will remain high
- Graphics card prices will somewhat return to normal as a new hardware competitor will come out that will be better for crypto than graphics cards
- When using the proprietary Nvidia drivers on Ubuntu, Wayland will be at least enabled on Ubuntu 22.04 and will be the default session in 22.10
- EndeavourOS will be in first place on DistroWatch on the default 6-month ranking list at some point during the year
- GTK theming will still be viable with GTK4, but with libraries as opposed to CSS
- Increased focus on Wayland will lead to development of the X12 protocol
- Josh Hawk
- Steam Deck will succeed (not everyone will cancel orders)
- SteamOS will only be really good on steam deck
