    I've been chatting with some Lutris experts about the differences between it and PlayOnLinux

    Take a look at this!

    I'll say! I don't really know what I'm looking at!

    Lutris looks like it might need a whole big bunch of explaining.

    Would adding Lutris to GOL's PlayOnLinux files be something you might be interested in doing? Do you see a place for us there?

    Its all the manual installation options... CRAZY!

    No, I'm not ready to commit to Lutris yet. It appears they have made a lot of improvements, but I know PlayOnLinux so well, that its hard to walk away and stick to a new client.

    Its one of those things where you have two choices that basically do the same thing.
    1. Lutris - Don't know how to use it
    2. PlayOnLinux - Expert at using it
    Easy choice for me, but I've heard a lot of good things about Lutris that PlayOnLinux doesn't have.
    At the same time Proton can do a lot as well.
