Out of Steam? Wine draining away? Ubuntu's 64-bit-only x86 decision is causing migraines

Even if Steam enforce a 64bit policy on new games, older games are unlikely to get updated in this way.

@Charlie Clark

Many games will not perform well (at all) in a VM without dedicating a GPU (along with a monitor or switch) for pass-through. I think containers would still require some 32 bit libraries.

Not saying those are bad ideas, just that there are some hurdles to get over.
