Today the Lemmy.fan family of frontends brings you something completely new:
daring.lemmy.fan! (or, DLF for short)
DLF runs the latest, cutting-edge release of Lemmy. The instance is separate from Lemmy.fan in that accounts, subscriptions, etc are not copied from Lemmy.fan. DLF is federated, however, so comments and communities can be made and posted across the fediverse.
It should go without saying, but daring.lemmy.fan is very much a sandbox and not anything to be trusted with permanent data. Though we prefer to rollback the database if we come across any issues, it may be necessary to wipe things and start completely over.
Hey, that's the joy and beauty of cutting-edge, open-source for you! Enjoy it! Frolic!

They could have easily crammed the Steam Deck full of stuff to make it hard to use for piracy - locking down everything, making it usable only to play games you legitimately own, force you to go through who knows what hoops in order to play games on it. That's what Nintendo or Apple or most other companies do.
But they didn't, because they realized they didn't have to. It's 100% possible to put pirated games on the Steam Deck - in fact, it's as easy as it could reasonably be. You copy it over, you wire it up to Steam, if it's a non-Linux game you set it up with Proton or whatever else you want to use to run it, bam. You can now run it in Steam just as easily as a normal Steam game (usually.) If you want something similar to cloud saves you can even set up SyncThing for that.
But all of that is a lot of work, and after all that you still don't have automatic updates, and some games won't run this way for one reason or another even though they'll run if you own them (usually, I assume, because of Steam Deck specific tweaks or install stuff that are only used when you're running them on the Deck via the normal method.) Some of this you can work around but it's even more hoops.
Whereas if you own a game it's just push a button and play. They made legitimately owning a game more convenient than piracy, and they did it without relying on DRM or anything that restricts or annoys legitimate users at all - even if a game has a DRM-free GOG version, owning it on Steam will still make it easier to play on the Steam Deck.

The Cybertruck Is a Disappointment Even to Cybertruck Superfans / Looking at the specs alone, the car is delivering 30 percent less range than expected for 30 percent more money::Looking at the specs alone, the car is delivering 30 percent less range than expected for 30 percent more money.
I am ashamed that I hadn’t reasoned this through given all the rubbish digital services have pulled with “purchases” being lies.
As always, the paying user has the worst experience. "Purchase" a show, can only watch on a certain console of a certain brand, no transfers, no backups, then it suddenly disappears from the library and nothing can be done.
If media companies insist on draconian DRM, then they should pay for full refunds to their loyal customers when one day they decide to delist that specific show.

Be kind. Do unto others.
Facts based in reality and science are not debatable.
Opinions are great, just be ready to back yours up with a solid foundation of factual information and/or research.
Are you the daring sort? Try our latest experiment: https://daring.lemmy.fan. Daring Lemmy Fans is an instance separate from the main lemmy.fan instances and runs the latest, bleeding-edge version of Lemmy available. This means that it may be unusable, broken, slow, or down for an extended time. We may need to roll-back the database. Anything is possible at Zomb--daring.lemmy.fan
So why use it? Daring.lemmy.fan is federated. It's a great place to test out apps on the latest version of Lemmy. It allows people to check out Lemmy's latest feature set.
