That vulkan support (1.1 in wine 5.0) has been in wine before. They started doing DX12 -> Vulkan back in 4.x (i cant remember what version exactly) And have actually talked around doing their own in-house DX9-11 -> Vulkan competitor to DXVK but I don’t know if they’ve started doing anything on that front.

Lmao. I love and hate how evil you are some days.

I hear you about WoW, It’s embarrassing how much time I’ve spent on that game and kind of still want to even though I have less time now, but it seems so disappointing this expansion.

I’ve been wanting to setup encryption on my home server but as it’s running BTRFS it appears something like dm-crypt needs to be setup before the BTRFS pool. So been looking at something that does the same but in the user space, maybe something like EncFS. Maybe one day they’ll add native support
