I reserved a Steam Deck!

I might be going too far with this Arch Linux brand loyalty, but I am so psyched I don’t care.

There’s three pieces of hardware that I’ve always kind of wanted but never been willing to spend money on in isolation:

  • A handheld gaming console
  • A laptop with a touch screen
  • A laptop with enough power to play games on a Steam library (my laptop is a bit too old for this)

So when I heard the Steam Deck existed and it would be running an Arch Linux system beneath it, I totally caved.

I’m just sad I didn’t hear about in time to be early enough in the queue to get it by Christmas. Ah well.

In unrelated news, careful readers might notice that the blog has been moved to blog.evanchen.cc. I think the old URL usamo.wordpress.com will continue to redirect for the foreseeable future, though. But I picked that wordpress username when I was like 12, so I’m glad to not be as tied to it anymore now. (The name “vEnhance” isn’t going anywhere, though.)
