I guess this is _not_ the Year of the Linux Desktop...for Steam anyways.

Steam is dropping support for Ubuntu, but not Linux entirely | PC Gamer[^]

From article:
So why is Valve ditching the most popular Linux desktop OS? Canonical, the company that owns and develops Ubuntu, said last week that Ubuntu 19.10 will not include any 32-bit packages. That means applications that rely on any 32-bit libraries or drivers won't work, which includes a large amount of games on Steam. The actual Linux kernel still supports 32-bit software, but requires OS distributors like Ubuntu to develop and test the 32-bit components.

In response to the backlash, Canonical released a statement this morning that it would continue to update "selected 32-bit i386 packages for Ubuntu 19.10 and 20.04 LTS," and that it would work with the gaming community on long-term solutions. In the meantime, Valve is still looking for another Linux desktop to call its home.
