Some thoughts on the Steam Deck in no particular order

I placed a pre-order somewhen yesterday. I did not bother fighting the store at 10am PST and I am not even sure I will execute the order. But I want to support Valve and Linux based gaming. Not because I think Linux is so much better or any of the free / FOSS arguments, but because we desperately need competition in the OS market for gamers now that Microsoft is going full 2001.
