RE: Steam Deck (First Impressions)

Nice overview, Valve have been pushing Linux gaming for the better and the constant flow of updates have only made the Steam Deck better over the last few months. I think changes to fan speed and other variable screen refresh rate have made a big difference.
I'm a big fan of their approach towards self repair too!
I don't really see the deck as a direct competitor to the Switch, but definitely other x86 devices. Have you used the gyro at all?
The self-repair is a big one! I love that a major company is bucking the tendency against this... and really put it front and centre!
I haven't used the gyro yet... I actually completely forgot about it! Will test it out soon!
I feel it is more matching against the Switch due to the control scheme... for the x86 machines, I still really prefer the Keyboard/Mouse setup.
