Proton: An application that allows comfortable gaming on Linux

When we talk about Gaming, there are no objections that Windows is better than Linux. However, although Linux is not designed to support heavy video games, there have been several improvements in recent years. Now, thanks to Proton, Gaming's Linux-based operating systems have reached new levels.

For those unfamiliar, Proton is one application Valve, which uses Wine along with some additional applications, to allow users to use software built for Windows on Linux-based operating systems. Thanks to Valve's program, Linux now supports more than 6000 video games, according to his blog Steam.

As we can see in the picture below, Proton has helped a lot in supporting video games, allowing many "Platinum" games to run comfortably on Linux, without the need for additional software.

More specifically, from about 11.000 games that currently exist in Steam, 6.000 (over 50%) have a Platinum rating. In addition to recent games, Proton offers better support and for older and lesser known games made for them windows.

However, today many of us prefer to play multiplayer video games. For this reason, there are many anti-cheat engines, which are designed to ensure good game quality. More specifically, anti-cheats watch games for hackers, spammers, etc. Unfortunately, due to the strange construction of anti-cheats systems, some of the games still do not support multiplayer when running on Linux.
