The gaming segment continues to grow, with platforms overtaking many platforms today. If a few years ago a game for Windows was exclusive to these systems, nowadays, by some tools, it is not.
Linux can now play 80% of the 100 most popular Steam titles thanks to Proton.
Proton: Windows game launcher on Linux
Proton is a tool released by Valve Software that has been integrated into Steam Play to allow running Windows games on Linux as easy as clicking the Play button in Steam. Proton Tool is a modified version of Wine that uses Vulkan so that it can run Windows games on Linux that require DirectX 11 and 12. Remember that Proton was integrated into Steam Play in 2018.
According to recent information, Proton allows you to play 79% of the 100 most popular Steam titles thanks to Proton. On the other hand, only 40% of Steam's TOP 10 games have Linux support thanks to Proton.
If we expand the filter to over a thousand popular games on Steam, the percentage drops to 77%, which is close to that of the top 100 games.

According to data from March, Proton has been allowed to operate more than 7000 Windows Games on Linux.
