2022-3 - Proton, Steam and Wine. According to this reddit page from 2 years ago the comment by 'OP'
"You need steam game only to get wineprefix and wine from proton. For example: you have game that you bought on gog that don't have native linux version and it hasn't been released on steam. You can get Steam - Free to Play first game from that page and you will have necessary files to run your game from gog. You can also remove steam completely from your PC and still will be able to use proton."

I have not tried it with EAW. Nor have I tried Steam but I think it may be a useful way to try the Proton Version of WINE.

Mint Notes
2021-11Endless OS 4.0 released - Distrowatch Endless OS 4.0 release notes support.endlessos.org

new!Linux Adventure EOS 3.9 Its back to the school drawing board!

Shells™ offers a virtual desktop from any operating system or device and you can download the app. US$ 8.95 month service. I have not tried it yet.

I'm not installing ArcoLinux, I decided that I don't need Arch really as Mint serves all the purpose I need for now, if a bit bloated. As far as security, you are only as secure as your browser anyway. I use Brave browser now from Brave's own PPA. PPA's are an easy way to get reliable and updated extra software packages not too bloated.

2021-9-15 - Renewed interest in trying other Linux Distros. Ready to try Arch by installing ArcoLinux. Also experiment to install Endless OS. Otherwise switched to Linux Mint 19.3 Mate since the expiration of updates for Mint 18. Other Distros of note I'm looking at - Solus, EndeavourOS, Eurolinux.

Manjaro is on the rise in the Linux world. Now ranked amazingly as 2nd at DistroWatch.com! This is one Distro I may switch to eventually.
The fact that they have a Spitfire is a big plus. I love Spitfires!


Sparky Linux

I was very impressed by Sparky Linux and their diverse offerings. The documentation is good also. This is one Distro that has it together more and more consistently as time goes by. So much so that I plan to install the 64-bit Gameover edition as alternative OS goto Distro for gaming on my Laptop. And yes this is one case I recommend using the rolling edition.

Check out their Sparky Wiki
