    Proton is much easier to use than wine, you only download it with Steam and ready without many settings.

    In truth, Proton facilitates the usage of Wine by "auto-configuring" it. For Linux newbies, this program makes for a great shortcut to run most (not all) Windows games on Linux, insofar as the digital rights protection system that ships With the game allows for it. DRM blocking a game running on Wine is no less a hindrance for Proton than it is if one were to set up Wine themselves.

    Putting on a price for something incredible like this is not a surprise. It runs perfectly well on Mac, unlike VirtualBox that requires a lot of space and Wine as well. There's a 14-day free trial so there is no harm trying it. No credit card info, nothing. Just a bit of clearing up space and finding your Windows OS and you're good to go. It's pretty incredible I must say. Anyone who gave Wine a shot MUST try this one!
