SteamOS 3.5 is almost here, includes a fix for the Steam Deck’s sneakiest performance bug

When a new Windows Update arrives, we tend to groan. Really, right now, Windows? What’s this one going to break? Do I really need it? “Remind me later.” A new version of the Linux kernel, on the other hand, always seems like a mini event in the open source community, promising exciting new features and performance improvements for the many, many devices that run Linux.
